experience the greatest pleasure in welcoming you to our midst 
on this, the most memorable occasion in the history of our 
Lodge. 

We rejoice, Most Worshipful Sir for several reasons: First, the 
laying of a corner stone of such a building as is now to be 
erected, is of great importance in the interests of our Lodge, 
marking a great stride in the progress of Freemasony whose 
principles are based on the corner stone of the great globe 
itself, and will last as long as time may exist, and secondly, 
from the honor we feel in having you, Most Worshipful Sir, to 
perform that interesting ceremony. 

That the G. A. O. T. U. may grant you and yours long life 
and prosperity, is the earnest prayer and sincere wisn of the 
brethren of Orient Lodge. 

On behalf of the Officers and Members of the Lodge.

some silver trowel, which bore the following inscription : 

Presented to M. W. Bro. Hugh Murray, Grand Master of the Grand

The Most Worshipful the Grand Master having graciously 
acknowledged and accepted the gift, the cement was spread 
and the upper stone lowered, with three halts, at which inter- 
vals the band played bars of the National Anthem. 

When it had been guided into its proper place, the principal 
Grand Officers applied the plumb-rule, level and square, and 
having reported that the stone was just, true and properly laid, 
the Grand Master struck the stone three times with the gavel 
and said : "Well made, truly laid, true and trusty. May this 
undertaking be conducted and completed by the craftsmen 
according to the grand plan, in peace, harmony and brotherly 
love." 

The stone was then strewn with corn, moistened with 
wine and anointed with oil, and as he performed these cere- 
monies the Grand Master said : " I strew corn upon the stone 
as an emblem of plenty ; I pour wine upon it as an emblem 
of cheerfulness, and I anoint it with oil as an emblem of comfort 
and consolation. May corn, wine and oil, and all the 
necessaries of life, abound among men, and may the blessings 
of the Supreme Architect of the Universe be upon this edifice 
and all connected with it." 

The contractors were then entrusted with the tools and plans, 
with which to complete the building. 

An eloquent address was then, at the request of the M. W. 
the Grand Master, delivered by R. W. Bro. Edward Mitchell, 
Grand Treasurer. 

The procession then re-formed, and the brethren returned

GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS. 

The Most Worshipful Grand Master delivered the fol- 
lowing address to the Brethren assembled in Grand Communi- 
cation : — 

Brethren of the Grand Lodge of Canada : 

An Allwise Father has permitted us again to assemble around 
the Altar of Freemasonry, there to renew our vows of fidelity, 
to counsel as to the alleviation of the sorrows, and the relief 
of the wants of the needy brother, the widow, and the orphan, 
to devise means by which the excellent tenets of the Order 
may be perpetuated, and to render an account of our steward- 
ship. 

It gives me great pleasure to meet the representative Masons 
of the Province of Ontario, in the birthplace of the Grand 
Lodge. 

Some of the old familiar faces are missing, and I see some 
who for the first time have come to assist in our deliberations. 

To all I extend a hearty and fraternal welcome, and trust 
that this meeting may be one long to be remembered with 
pleasure, and pray that the Great Architect of the Universe 
may guide our deliberations, and that the plans prepared by 
you tor the guidance of the workmen, may be such as will 
conduce to His glory and to the good of mankind. 

deaths. 

Since last we met, the gavel of death has sounded, and 
brethren ot eminence and ability connected with this and 
sister Grand Lodges have answered the summons. 

The Grand Lodge of Virginia mourns for its Grand Master, 
who died at Charlottesville on the 15th August, 1884, M. W. 
Bro. Henry W. Murray, on his election as Grand Master, 
expressed his intention of visiting all the subordinate lodges in 
his State, and was engaged in the performance of that promise, 
having visited lodges in twenty-three, out of the forty districts, 
when his further visitations were interfered with by the fatal 
disease which terminated his useful life. This is the third 
time in the history of that Grand Lodge that the brethren have 
been called to pay the last sad honors to a presiding Grand 
Master. 

Manitoba has sustained a great loss in the person of our 



50 GRAND LODGE OF ( ANADA. 

Grand Representative, M. W. Bro. Kennedy, Past Grand Mas- 
ter of that Province, and P. D. D. G. M. of this Grand Podge, 
who on his way home from Egypt, where he had been serv- 
ing his Queen and Country, was struck down with disease, 
and died at London, Eng., on 3rd May, 1885. Mississippi 
has lost Brothers J. H. Howry and William French. Arkan- 
sas : E. H. English; North Carolina : H J. Grainger; and 
Montana : John J. Hull, all Past Grand Masters of their re- 
spective States. 

We have also to mourn the ioss of R. W. Bro. W. H. 
Tuller, our representative near the Grand Lodge of Georgia, 
a brother held in high esteem by the craft in that State. 

Coming nearer home, New York laments the death of R. W. 
Bro. John A. Lockwood, of Buffalo. He was personally 
known to most of you, and so highly respected in this jurisdic 
tion, that three years ago he was elected an honorary member 
of the Grand Lodge, with the rank of P. G. S. Warden. The 
Grand Master of New York, in hi's address to Grand Lodge, 
says of him : " He was a genial, happy man, square as an 
angle of ninety degrees, just, true and upright, and to be his 
friend was an honor the highest might crave." He will be 
missed by Canadian Masons, who will long remember him for 
his large hearted hospitality. The late R. W. Brother was a 
frequent visitor at our annual communications, and was 
always warmly welcomed by the brethren. 

In our own jurisdiction I have received intimation of the 
death of the following Past Grand Officers, namely : R. W. 
Bro. M. H. Spencer, of Barrie, P. D. D. G. M., of the Toronto 
District, who died on the 10th February, 1885, and V. W. 
Bros. F. R. Armstrong of Markham, and D. A. Creasor, of 
Owen Sound, who died on the 17th July, 1884, and the 
29th December, 1884, respectively. 

VISITATIONS. 

I have, during the year, visited the following lodges : — 
Barton, No. 6, when I installed R. W. Bro. Gavin Stewart, 
District Deputy Grand Master, of the Hamilton District, and 
R. W. Bro. D. B. Dewar, District Deputy Grand Master of 
the Wellington District ; Strict Observance, No. 27 ; St. 
John's, No. 40 ; Acacia, No. 61 ; St. Andrew's, No. 62, Valley, 
No. 100; Wentworth, No. 166 ; Enniskillen, No. 185 ; Stevenson, 
No. 218; Temple, No. 324 ; Orient, No. 339 ; and Doric, No. 
382. 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 58S5. 5 I 

During my visit to Acacia Lodge I was accompanied by 
M. W. Bro. Spry, Past Grand Master, and R. YV. Bros. Klot/., 
Mason, Stewart, Gibson, Magill, Bull, and other officers and 
members of Grand Lodge. On that occasion R.W. Bro. Mitchell, 
on behalf of my mother lodge, presented me with an address. 

On the 15th anniversary of Stevenson Lodge, addresses 
were delivered, on the history of the Grand Lodge of Canada, 
by M. VY. Bro. Spry ; on the condition of Masonry, by M. 
W. l'.ro. Kerr; the Masonry of the past and present, by R. 
W. Bro. J. Ross Robertson ; Recollections of Stevenson 
Lodge, by R. W. Bro. D. McLellan ; The History of Steven- 
son Lodge, by R. W. Bro. J. G. Burns; Religion and Free- 
masonry, by V. W. Bro. N. G. Bigelow ; Masonic Literature, by 
V. VY. Bro. Hambly ; and by the Master of the Lodge, W. 
Bro. John Patton, and R. W. Bro. Kivas Tully. 

At the meeting of Strict Observance Lodge I had the great 
pleasure of meeting M. W. Bro. Theodore T. Gurney, Past 
Grand Master ot Illinois, and of listening to a very able ad- 
dress on Masonic matters. On his return to Chicago he for- 
warded to me a number of copies of the proceedings of his 
Grand Lodge for 1884, including his very able report on Foreign 
Correspondence, a report full of interest, reviewing all the 
Grand Lodges of the world. 

LODGES OF INSTRUCTION. 

I regret that the recommendation of Grand Lodge, in regard 
to the holding of Lodges of Instruction in the Districts has not 
been more generally acted upon. The only D. D. G. M.'s who 
have held meetings for instruction during the year, are, if my 
information is correct, the District Deputies of the London, 
Huron and Hamilton Districts. R. W. Bro. YV. G. Lumley 
assembled the lodges of one half of his District at St. Thomas, 
and the other half at Strathroy. R. W. Bro. D. S. Rupert 
called the Lodges together at Stratford, and R. YV. Bro. Stewart 
held meetings at Milton and Hamilton. I had the pleasure of 
attending at St. Thomas and Hamilton, at the former place I 
was accompanied by the Grand Secretary and R. YV. Bro. J. S. 
Dewar, of London, and at the latter by M. W. Bro. Seymour, 
R. YV. Bros. Macpherson, Klotz, Bull, and other brethren. 

In both instances the work was creditable, and much inter- 
est was evinced by the large number of brethren who were 
present. 



52 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA.- 

WORM. 

In accordance with the recommendation made by the Past 
(hand Master, I appointed a Committee composed of M. VV. 
Bros. Spry, Moffat, Henderson, Kerr and Seymour, and R. W. 
Bros. Henry Robertson, Klotz and Bull, with whom I could 
consult on all matters pertaining to ritual, and as at last annual 
communication it had been resolved, that at future meetings 
of Grand Lodge the three degrees should be exemplified, I 
called a meeting of said committee at the office of the Grand 
Secretary. The members who met me on that occasion were 
M. W. Bro. Seymour and R. W. Bros. Klotz and Bull. 
Without making changes of any vital importance, the Com- 
mittee suggested a number of alterations with the view of en- 
suring greater uniformity in the language employed in the 
several degrees, and of correcting a few minor inaccuracies 
in the work. The suggestions referred to have received my 
approval, and during this session, if time permit, the de- 
grees will be exemplified. I bespeak your eainest attention 
to the work, and cannot do better than reiterate the words of 
Past Grand Master Wilson, when seventeen years ago the de- 
grees were worked in your presence : " I believe you will agree 
with me in the opinion that any discussion on the subject 
here would be injudicious, but at the same time it is of great 
importance that the views and opinions of those who have really 
studied the question, and who believe they are in a position 
to throw more light upon it, should receive due consideration. 
Those views and opinions can be submitted to the Committee 
on ritual, with whom the Grand Master will consult, who will 
be at all times ready to receive, and most respectfully and 
earnestly to consider, any suggestions which may be laid before 
them." 

NEW LODGES. 

In accordance with the request of Grand Lodge, I continued 
the dispensations to Lome Lodge, Tamworth, in the County 
of Addington, and Mattawa Lodge, Mattavva, in the Nipissing 
District, and issued a dispensation to The Spry Lodge, Fenelon 
Falls, in the County of Victoria. 

Dispensations have also been issued for the formation of the 
following new lodges, namely : — i. Manitoulin, Gore Bay, Al- 
goma, 23rd Sept., 1884. 2. Murray, Beaverton, Ontario, 27th 
January, 1885. 3. Golden Rule, Gravenhurst, Muskoka, 21st 
May, 1885. 4. Antiquity, Parkdale, York, 23rd May, 1885. 
5. Rodney, Rodney, Elgin, 19th June, 1885. 6. Keystone, 
Sault Ste. Marie, Algoma, 19th June, 1885. 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 53 

I have received applications for Dispensations for lodges at 
Wooler, in the County of Northumberland, Maxville, in the 
County of Glengarry, and Tilbury Centre in the County ot 
Kent, but as the papers relating to these applications have not 
as yet received my approval, no dispensations have been issued. 

AMALGAMATION OF LODGES. 

I approved of the amalgamation of True Britons Lodge, 
No. 14, and Clandeboye Lodge, No. 355, of Perth, the latter 
Lodge surrendering its warrant on the 7th January, 1885. 

GRAND REPRESENTATIVES. 

I have made the following appointments of representatives, 
on the recommendation and with the approval of the Grand 
Masters of the Grand Lodges to which they are respectively 
accredited, namely : 

R. W. Bro Jas. A. Gray, of Atlanta, near the Grand Lodge 
of Georgia, in place of R. W. Bro. Wm. H. Tuller, deceased. 

R. W. Bro. James W. Hopper, of Lebanon, near the Grand 
Lodge of Kentucky, in place of R. W. Bro. W. T. Darrow, re- 
moved from the jurisdiction. 

R. W. Bro. Edwin Parnell, of Melbourne, near the Grand 
Lodge of Victoria. 

Bro. Gustavo Lama, of Lima, near the Grand Lodge of 
Peru. 

And the following appointments have been made, with 
my approval, of representatives near this Grand Lodge, namely : 

R. W. Bro. Otto Klotz, of Preston, for the Grand Lodge of 
Washington Territory, who has been reappointed. 

R. W. Bro. Robert Ramsay, of Orillia, for the Grand Lodge 
of Victoria. 

R. W. Bro. R. T. Walkem, Q. C, of Kingston, for the Grand 
Lodge of Peru. 

UNMASONIC CONDUCT. 

I regret that I have been called upon to issue commissions 
to investigate serious charges preferred against three worshipful 
masters. In each case I agreed with the commissioners. One 



54 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA. 

of the brethren found guilty I deemed it my duty to suspend 
from all the rights, privileges and benefits of Masonry. Upon 
one of the others found guilty, I inflicted a severe reprimand, 
and the case of the third, upon the recommendation of the Com- 
mission (the brother in the meantime having ceased to be Mas- 
ter), I ordered to be tried by the Lodge. He also was found 
guilty and suspended. As in the first instance the brother 
has entered an appeal, and in the latter instance the Lodge de- 
sires further punishment, I have directed the charges and evi- 
dence to be referred to the Board, with a view to the restora- 
tion of the brethren, or the infliction of additional and more 
severe punishment, if called for. 

APPLICATION FOR ASSISTANCE. 

A disastrous fire having destroyed a large portion of the 
Village of Port Perry, application was made to me to assist 
from the funds of Grand Lodge the brethren who had suffered 
loss. 

After consultation with R. W. Bro. H. Robertson, Deputy 
Grand Master, and R. W. Bro. Otto Klotz, Chairman of the 
Committee on Benevolence, I, accompanied by the Grand 
Secretary, R. W. Bro. Mason, visited the place for the purpose 
of personally enquiring into the necessity for the grant. I 
met the officers and members of Prince Albert Lodge, and 
heard all that could be said in favor of the petition. 

Shortly after my return, I instructed the Grand Secretary to 
inform the Worshipful Master that I could not see my way 
clear to grant any specific sum to the lodge for losses sustained 
by the members; that I had reluctantly come to the conclusion 
that the circumstances of the case would not justify me in 
drawing upon the funds of Grand Lodge without the direct 
authority of that body. Recognizing, however, .the fact that 
there might be individual cases of hardship, I directed the 
Grand Secretary to say that should any such be laid before me, 
I would be happy to recommend them to the Chairman of the 
Board of General Purposes. 

DECISIONS. 

During the year I have rendered the following decisions 
upon questions submitted to me : 

Question — Can a Quaker, who does not take an oath or 
administer one, be made a Mason ? 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 55 

Answer — No. An affirmation, in lieu of the oath or obliga- 
tion of Masonry, is not admissible. 

Question — Candidates for Masonry, before initiation, are 
required to declare their belief in a Supreme Being who has 
revealed His will to man. Is the Bible meant by that Revealed 
Will ? 

Answer — Certainly, God's holy book, is His revealed will. 
It is one of the three great lights, placed on the altar, to rule 
and direct our faith. 

Question — Can an agnostic, who says, there may be a God, 
I do not deny it, but I do not know that there is, be made a 
Mason ? 

Anstver — No. No person can be initiated who does not 
believe in the True God, the Great Architect of the. Universe, 
the Creator and Preserver of all things, who has revealed His 
will to man, and who will punish vice and reward virtue. 

Question — What should be done in the case of a Mason who 
is taking an active part in promoting and furthering the so- 
called Free-Thought doctrine ? 

Answer — An atheist, who denies the existence of God, a 
free-thinker who discards revelation, or who expresses con- 
tempt for God or religion, should be proceeded against accord- 
ing to the mode laid down in " Masonic Trials." 

Question — Can an Indian, who is not enfranchised, be made 
a Mason? 

Answer — Yes. Color, creed or country is no bar to initia- 
tion. The question of admitting a candidate is one of 
expediency, and is left to the judgment of the members of the 
lodge where such application is made. 

Question — Can a brother ag?inst whom charges of unma- 
sonic conduct are preferred, object to the composition of the 
committee appointed by the lodge to investigate ? 

Answer — A member of the committee, for causes to be fully 
explained by the objecting party, may be removed by the 
Master and another appointed. 

Question — Can a ballot be demanded on any question before 
a lodge? 

Answer — No. The Masonic mode of voting is by a show 
of hands. The Constitution provides that in the exceptional 
cases of balloting for candidates, at Masonic trials, and at the 



56 (IRANI) LODGE OK CANADA. 

election of certain officers, the vote is by ballot. In other 
cases it is not permissible. 

In Grand Lodge a ballot may be called for, but this is be- 
cause of the inequality in the number of votes held by the 
brethren, some members having only one vote, others, pro- 
viding they represent lodges by proxy, may hold as many as ten. 

Question — What are the correct numbers in Grand Honors ? 

Answer — Nine for Grand Master ; seven for Deputy Grand 
Master, and for District Deputies ; five for all other elected 
Grand Officers ; three for other distinguished brethren. The 
honors given to Past Grand Officers are the same as given 
to present officers. 

Question — Can residents of a city where there are a number 
of lodges having concurrent jurisdiction be made masons in a 
lodge outside the city limits, provided their residence is nearer 
that lodge ? 

Answer — Yes, the jurisdiction of a lodge extends half way 
in every direction to the nearest lodge. 

Question — Can a Mason who has paid his dues, resigned his 
membership, applied for and received his demit, removed to 
and taken up his residence in the United States, be tried for 
unmasonic conduct by the lodge of which he was formerly a 
member ? 

Answer — No, the penal jurisdiction of a lodge is, 1st, over 
its members no matter where they reside, and 2nd, over all 
Masons residing within its geographical jurisdiction, whether 
they are affiliated or not, but it has no jurisdiction over 
Masons not affiliated with it, who are living within the territory 
of a sister Grand Lodge. 

An interesting case affecting the jurisdiction of lodges came 
before me. A person who had lived for a number of years in 
Belleville, in which city there are a number of lodges having 
concurrent jurisdiction, removed to the village of Stirling, and 
one month thereafter applied to the lodge there to be made a 
Mason. His petition was received and a committee appointed 
to make enquiries. In due time a favorable report was made, 
the ballot was taken, and he was declared accepted. Appli- 
cation was then made to one of the lodges in Belleville for 
permission to initiate him. I was asked a number of questions in 
in reference to this case, as to the regularity of the ballot, the 
certificate of character, the necessity of a dispensation as 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885 57 

required by Art. 165 of theConstitution, and whether the senior 
lodge, or a majority of the lodges at Belleville, should give the 
certificate of character. 

I replied that the intention of the Constitution was that 
candidates should be initiated in the lodge nearest to the place 
of their residence, and that Grand Lodge had ruled that resi- 
dence, masonically speaking, was not acquired until the candi- 
had resided in a place one year. While that was the case the 
Constitution provided that lodges may initiate candidates who 
live within their territory, notwithstanding they have not lived 
there the required time, provided they produced a certificate of 
character from the lodge having jurisdiction ; that in this case it 
was not necessary to get a dispensation nor pay the fee to 
Grand Lodge, that the certificate of character from the lodge 
having jurisdiction was sufficient and was in fact a permit to 
initiate. 

Under a Grand Lodge ruling in 1868, the person referred 
to could be made a Mason at Belleville by any of the lodges 
there, without reference to Stirling Lodge, although he had 
removed from Belleville and was living at Stirling ; and under 
the Constitution he could not be made at Stirling unless he 
produced a certificate of character from Belleville, which could 
be given by any one of the lodges there. That Art. 165 did 
not apply to this case, but to a person seeking to be made a 
Mason in a lodge which is not the nearest to the place where 
he resides, and has resided for a year. In such a case, he 
could not be initiated without payment of the fee to Grand 
Lodge, nor without a dispensation from the Grand Master. 
That it did not appear that Stirling Lodge had acted wrongly, 
and that if the Belleville brethren were unwilling that the can- 
didate should be made a Mason, they could prevent it by 
refusing the certificate of character. 

BENEVOLENT OR SICK FUNDS. 

Members of the Craft have asked whether there is anything 
in the Constitution to prevent them forming a benevolent or sick 
benefit fund in connection with the lodge. While there is noth- 
ing in the Constitution prohibiting this, the brethren should re- 
member that "Masonry is not a benefit association or an insur- 
ance company, nor is it to be placed on the same level with asso- 
ciations which agree to make to the contributor or his represen- 
tatives a cash payment for the amount which he has paid in.'' 
There are plenty of companies to whom may be left the insur- 
ance of the lives of the members, and there are associations of 



58 GR wi' LODGE OK CANAD \. 

brethren who have given much time and attention to the sub- 
ject, notably the London Masonic Mutual Benefit Association, 
but while we recognize the good work they are doing, I cannot 
recommend that lodges, as such, be permitted to form them 
selves into insurance companies. 

EMBLEMS USED FOR UNWORTHY PURPOSES. 

My attention has been called to the pernicious custom of 
using Masonic emblems as trade marks. The Mason who 
advertises himself a member of the Craft in this way for the 
purpose of increasing his business, is unworthy of support. It 
has even been said that the emblems of our time honored 
Order have been prostituted by being painted upon the sign 
boards of taverns, and that Masonic diplomas are framed and 
exhibited in bar-rooms. This trading in masonry should be 
stopped. 

EXAMINATION OF VISITORS. 

Information reaches me from various quarters that the 
lodges are not sufficiently careful in the examination of visitors, 
and that in some instances the requirements of the Order are 
not complied with. Every Master previous to his installation 
solemnly promises that no visitor shall be received into his 
lodge without due examination, and producing proper vouchers 
of his having been initiated into a regular lodge. Worshipful 
Masters should be especially careful to see that the examina- 
tion of visitors is thorough, and that in cases where there is any 
doubt, additional evidence should be required, and that the 
"Tyler's O. B. " is in all cases administered. 

SPECIAL COMMUNICATIONS. 

During the year special communications have been held at 
North Augusta on the 13th August, 1884, when the corner stone 
of St. Peter's (Episcopal) Church was laid by M. W. Bro. J. A.

The receipts and expenditure of Grand Lodge for year ending 
31st May, 1885, were : 

Receipts. 

From Lodges $13,558 75 

Interest on Investments 3i'84 08 

$16,742 83 

Expenditure. 

General Purposes $ 5,416 55 

Benevolence 10,625 °° 

■ 16,041 55 

Cash Capital of Grand Lodge $68,394 49 



60 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA. 

Notwithstanding the fact that there has been considerable 
increase in the payments on account of benevolence, the total 
expenditure is less than during the previous year, and the cash 
capital is greater. It is a matter of congratulation that the 
funds of Grand Lodge are in such a condition as to enable the 
Committee on Benevolence to continue their grants from year 
to year. 

POET LAUREATE. 

The hearty approval of over five hundred Grand and Past 
Grand Officers of the United States, Canada and Great Britain 
having been received, it was decided by a Committee presided 
over by the M. W. the Grand Master of New York, to confer 
the title of Poet Laureate of Freemasonry upon Bro. Rob. 
Morris, Past Grand Master of Kentucky, and Past Deputy 
Grand Master and Honorary Member of this Grand Lodge. 

In answer to invitation, representatives of all the Grand 
Lodges in the United States and Canada, assembled in the 
Grand Lodge Room, Masonic Temple, New York, where, after 
suitable addresses by Past Grand Masters Roome and Simons, 
Deputy Grand Master Lawrence, and the Rev. Dr. Worrall, 
the Grand Master crowned Bro. Morris with the laurel, and 
hailed him Poet Laureate of Freemasonry. 

I regretted very much that I was prevented from attending 
this great gathering of Masons, and witnessing the unique 
ceremony of coronation, and of doing honor to a brother who 
has devoted his best energies during a lifetime to the advance- 
ment of the craft. 

THE NORTH-WEST REBELLION. 



Within the past few months we have been called upon to 
deplore the outbreak in a distant part of the Dominion, of 
resistance to the law, and armed rebellion against the authority 
of our beloved Sovereign. 

Happily the insurrection did not assume formidable propor- 
tions, did not for a moment menace the stability of the 
Government, or threaten the permanent prosperity, even of 
the section of country to which it was confined. But much 
suffering has been caused, and many valuable lives have been 
sacrificed in the restoration of peace, and the vindication of 
the law. 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 6 1 

Especially are we pained to know that women, children and 
clergymen, have fallen victims to the savage warriors, and that 
incidents of more than ordinary barbarity have marked this 
wicked revolt. The thanks of all loyal Canadians are due to 
the brave men, many of whom were members of our Order, 
who, after enduring many hardships, and much personal 
fatigue, and suffering great loss, have suppressed the outlaws, 
and restored the blessings of peace, and the supremacy of the 
law to the disturbed districts. And our humble thanks are 
due to the Great Architect of the Universe, who has not per- 
mitted this calamity to assume more serious proportions. 

In referring to this event it is not inappropriate to point out 
that our charges declare that "a mason is a peaceful subject to 
the civil powers, wherever he resides or works, and is never to be 
concerned in plots and conspiracies against the peace and wel- 
fare of the nation, nor to behave himself undutifully to inferior 
magistrates. He is cheerfully to conform to every lawful 
authority ; to uphold, on every occasion, the interests of the 
community, and zealously to promote the prosperity of his 
own country." Thus Masonry teaches loyalty to the sovereign, 
obedience to the law, and subordination to constituted 
authority, without which civilized communities cannot exist. 

I trust that the D. D. G. M.'s of the respective districts will 
take especial pains to see that the wives and families of 
brethren now on duty in the Northwest, are not permitted to 
want for the necessaries and comforts of life. 

LECTURES AND LIBRARIES. 

I am happy to notice that in some lodges an effort is being 
made to revive one of the oldest and most useful customs of 
the Craft, namely : the employment of a portion of each and 
every night of meeting, for the delivery of lectures and essays 
on Masonic subjects, and upon which general discussion is 
allowed. 

Our Order opens a wide field for investigation, and offers 
scope for the employment of talents of the most intelligent and 
cultivated mind. Its history, profoundly mysterious, and now 
so widely discussed by the ablest members of the Craft, in all 
countries, furnishes a theme, sufficient in itself, to fully employ 
the brethren in its research, and provides an almost exhaustless 
subject for debate. Its philosophy, beyond what is taught by 
the exemplification of our beautiful ceremonies, and in the lec- 
tures of the degrees, a subject so little understood by the ma- 



GRAND LODGE OK CANADA. 

jority of the members, supplies innumerable questions, which 
can only be answered by those who have made Masonry a 
study. 

Questions connected with our time honored Order, are con- 
tinually arising, which can only be discussed and answered 
under the direction of competent and experienced masters, 
who will guard the landmarks against encroachment. 

I heartily recommend this great reform to your careful con- 
sideration, and sincerely hope that the example set by the 
lodges referred to, will be generally followed, feeling sure that 
the attendance will be greatly increased, and a general revival 
of interest result. 

I also recommend, and urge lodges, or in the case of cities 
or towns, groups of lodges, to organize Masonic Libraries, and 
thereby furnish to the brethren opportunity to improve them- 
selves in the knowledge of every Masonic subject. 

BELIEF IN T. G. A. O. T. U. 

The attention of the Masons of the world has been 
directed to this jurisdiction by the address of the Grand 
Master of the State of New York to his Grand Lodge. I 
consider the question to which he draws attention of sufficient 
importance to warrant me in quoting his remarks : 

"a vital question. 

" Of late there has been considerable discussion in the public press and 
in masonic circles, in relation to a case of discipline in a masonic lodge in 
Toronto, in which the question of belief in God as requisite to masonic 
good standing was involved. It is unnecessary herein to review this par- 
ticular case, but I believe that the honor of our grand old fraternity 
demands that in these days when infidelity is rife and when even some 
so-called masonic periodicals make light of that foundation-stone of Free- 
masonry — belief in the Supreme Being — there should go forth from official 
sources, words on this subject of no uncertain sound. If there be no God 
in Masonry, aye, if belief in God be not the corner-stone upon which 
Freemasonry is founded, then indeed is it in its decadence and its days are 
numbered. But, brethren, we have not reached this low plane. I know 
that as I here and now put the question to the more than seven hundred 
representatives of lodges in this great jurisdiction — ' In whom do you put 
your trust?'— that your hearts throb back the answer — 'In God.' 
Freemasonry is neither Godless nor anti-Christian, nor is it sectarian. It 
embraces in its membership men of all creeds and no creed — Jew, 
Mohammedan, Christian, all are found within its broad fold, but none 
who do not acknowledge the existence of one Supreme Being, who ruleth 
all things and to whom all owe allegiance. To my Hebrew brother, it is 
the God of Israel — -to the Mohammedan, the God as revealed in the great 
open book of the starry-decked heavens — to the Christian, the God and 
Father of our Saviour Tesus Christ. 



\XNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 63 

" It has been charged that ' had they (the Masons) the courage of their 
convictions they would pluck the name of the Supreme Being out of their 
ritual.' Nothing could be farther from the truth than such an assertion. 
To eliminate the name of the Deity from our ritual would leave it but 
an empty shell. Yes, there is 100m within our broad fold for those of all 
creeds and no creed, but our dcors are not open to the atheist, nor is 
there room within our portals for him." 

When in 1877 the Grand Orient of France repealed the 
clause in the constitution, affirming the belief in God as a 
fundamental principle, and our Grand Master withdrew the 
credentials of our representative, the action of Grand Lodge 
was unmistakable. 

The Board of General Purposes reported, and the Grand 
Lodge adopted the following : 

*' The action of the M. W. the Grand Master, in withdrawing the cre- 
dentials of our Representative from the Grand Orient of France, will be 
approved of by every member of Grand Lodge — the Grand Orient of 
France having erased from its Constitution those paragraphs which assert 
a belief in the existence of God and the immortality of the soul. Such 
action can only be received as an abandonment of the great landmark of 
Freemasonry upon which the principles of our Order are formed, and it is 
opposed to the traditions, practice and preceepts of all true Masons from 
the earliest period of our history. Such a departure calls for* decisive 
action, and demands response, with no uncertain sound, from all true 
Masons. We, therefore, desire to record our determination to hold no 
intercourse with any body which does not acknowledge the existence of 
the Supreme Being — the T. G. A. O. T. U., — and that we cannot continue 
to recognize the Grand Orient of France as a Masonic body." 

My brethren, Masonry wisely requires no more than a belief 
in one great all powerful God, the Great Architect of the Uni- 
verse, its Father and Preserver, who has revealed his will to 
man, and who will punish vice and reward virtue, but it requires 
that, and nothing less will be accepted. The man who denies 
the existence of a God is already excluded ; practical atheism 
should also be excluded, in the persons of those who only 
admit, that there possibly may be a God, there may be a 
future life, where men will be rewarded or punished for the 
deeds done in the body. How can such an one be a Mason ? 
The volume of the sacred law, given to rule and govern our 
faith and placed on our altars, has for him no symbolic meaning. 
His answer that he puts his trust in God is untrue, to him the 
philosophy of Masonry is meaningless. 

QUEBEC. 

The Grand Master of Quebec has issued a proclamation to 
all brethren in obedience to his Grand Lodge, declaring all 



i<\ GRAND I.ODllE OF CANADA. 

lodges in that Province working under any foreign (J rand 
Lodge, to be illegally and irregularly existing, and prohibiting 
all brethren acknowledging his authority from holding Masonic 
intercourse with any of the members of such lodges, in so far 
as Ancient Craft Masonry is concerned. 

The brethren affected by this edict are the members of St. 
Paul's Lodge No. 374, St. George's Lodge No. 440, and St. 
Lawrence Lodge No. 640, all in the City of Montreal, and on 
the register of the United Grand Lodge of England. 

I consider it my duty to place before you the relationship 
which this Grand Lodge bears to these lodges. 

Prior to 1855 Canada was masonically unoccupied territory. 
The Grand Lodges of England, Ireland and Scotland claimed 
concurrent jurisdiction, and each had lodges of their obedience 
in the Province. 

In that year a convention of delegates from the lodges in 
Upper and Lower Canada was called to meet at Hamilton, 
when the Grand Lodge of Canada was formed and its officers 
installed. 

Several of the Lodges refused to join in this movement, and 
continued to work under their original warrants. 

Three years later, the Provincial Grand Lodge, which had 
continued working under England, was dissolved, and the 
lodges hitherto working under it declared themselves an inde- 
pendent Grand Lodge, under the title of The Ancient Grand 
Lodge of Canada, of which Sir Allan McNab was the Grand 
Master. 

In the same year terms of union were agreed upon by repre- 
sentatives of the two Grand Bodies, and in accordance with 
those terms the Ancient Grand Lodge was dissolved, and its 
members and lodges united with the Grand Lodge of Canada 
and were enrolled upon its ■register. 

In the following year, the United Grand Lodge of England 
which up to that time had refused to recognize the legitimacy 
of our Grand Lodge, intimated a willingness to acknowledge 
it, as having jurisdiction over Canada West. 

This limited territorial recognition was not accepted, it being 
claimed that as Upper and Lower Canada had been united 
into one Province in 1843, this Grand Lodge had jurisdiction 
over Camada East as well as Canada West. The correspon- 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 65 

dence which ensued, resulted in recognition, on condition that 
the lodges which refused to join us, should be permitted to 
continue working under their original obedience, the Grand 
Lodge of England agreeing in the future to establish no more 
lodges in any part of Canada. Our Grand Lodge accepted 
recognition on these terms, and assured the Grand Lodge of 
England that as long as those lodges preferred continuing 
under that Grand Lodge, they would not be interfered with in 
any way, and that their members would ever receive a hearty 
and fraternal welcome among us. 

In i860, there were working in Montreal the three lodges 
already referred to. The D. D. G. M. of that district reported 
that two of them, namely, St. George's and St. Lawrence, were 
irregular, they having by the surrender of their warrants ceased 
to exist. The warrants it was asserted, had, after their surren- 
der, been handed back to certain brethren, without the cog- 
nizance of the Grand Lodge of England. On the following 
year _ notwithstanding the protest of the representative of 
England, Grand Lodge declared them to be irregular, and in- 
structed the Grand Master to give immediate effect to that 
resolution. 

Accordingly an edict was issued, forbidding communication 
with the members of these lodges. At the next meeting of 
Grand Lodge the Grand Master was requested to hear any 
further evidence the Grand Lodge of England might offer in 
reference to St. Lawrence Lodge, and to take such final action 
as he might see fit. Upon the production of the evidence 
he was satisfied as to the legitimacy of that lodge, and revoked 
his edict, in so far as it applied to St. Lawrence Lodge, and 
enjoined the brethren to exchange friendly intercourse. 

In 1864 in his address, the Grand Master referred to the 
edict still in force against St. George's Lodge, and justified the 
action in that connection, referring to the terms of agreement 
with England, he said : "It was a great mistake we made in not 
determining a fixed date, when there must be exclusive jurisdic- 
tion throughout Canada," pointing out that we were not abso- 
lutely the Grand Lodge of Canada, though declared and 
acknowledged to be such, while lodges existed in our territory 
refusing to acknowledge our authority, and that in his opinion, 
no dishonor could attach to our Grand Lodge, if, considering 
the trouble we had had to encounter, we were even then to 
issue a notification, such as we should have done, when we 
took our place among the Grand Lodges of Freemasonry. 



66 GRAND LODGE 01 CANADA. 

Grand Lodge differed from him on both those points, and 
passed a resolution, that as ihe Grand Lodge of England, must 
necessarily be the proper judge of its relations towards its subor- 
dinate lodges, and as it claimed that the St. George's Lodge 
had been working regularly under it since 1856, previous 
to the recognition of the Grand Lodge of Canada by the 
Grand Lodge of England, we must now most cheerfully 
recognize it, notwithstanding the grounds we had pre- 
viously understood as existing against such recognition. 
"And, that mindful as we are that the recognition by the 
Grand Lodge of England, was accepted on terms providing for 
the continuance of its authority, in certain specified cases, and 
notwithstanding the objections inherent to that system, we 
cannot at present see any course, which with honor is now 
open to this Grand Lodge, to change ihe well understood 
arrangement.'' 

The dispute in reference to these lodges working under 
English warrants, was thus settled, and they were acknow- 
ledged to be regular, with charters dating anterior to the estab- 
lishment and recognition of this Grand Lodge. 

In 1867 the Imperial Parliament, by the passage of the 
British North America Act, provided for the voluntary union 
of the different British Provinces of America, into one legis- 
lative confederation. In this Act Canada West was designated 
as the Province of Ontario, and Canada East as the Province 
of Quebec. 

In accordance with the terms of that Act, the Provinces of 
Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick were uni- 
ted under the name ot the Dominion of Canada. 

In 1S69, brethren in Quebec, claiming that the political 
changes made by that act entitled them to form a Grand Lodge 
for that Province, met at Montreal and established the Grand 
Lodge ot Quebec. 

This Grand Lodge refused recognition, and not until 1874 
did it cede to the new Grand Lodge all the rights and privi- 
leges previously claimed in that territory, and recognize and 
welcome it as a sister Grand Lodge. 

The Grand Lodge of England, which up to that time had 
refused recognition, then expressed a willingness to recognize 
it on the same terms, in reference to the three English lodges 
in Montreal, as had been agreed to by the Grand Lodge of 
Canada. 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 67 

This recognition was refused by Quebec, which declared it 
would accept nothing short of recognition of supreme author- 
ity in the Province. Correspondence was carried on between 
the Grand Lodges, up to the issuing of the edict. 

1 "' »e Grand Lodge of Quebec contended for undivided 
sovereignty, and demanded that the Grand Lodge of England 
should withdraw the warrants of these lodges. The Grand 
Lodge of England refused to withdraw the warrants contrary 
to the expressed wish of the lodges, but intimated that it 
would offer no obstacle to the transference by the members of 
their allegiance. 

It is cause for regret that the brethren of St. Paul's, St. 
George's and St. Lawrence Lodges have not seen it to be their 
duty to remove all occasion for contention, by surrendering 
their warrants, and affiliating with the Grand Lodge of the 
i'r vince. 

I sympathize strongly with the Grand Lodge of Quebec in 
the struggle for what I believe to be a correct principle, and I 
admit that from her standpoint she is not bound by the condi- 
tions that applied to the recognition of the Grand Lodge of 
Canada. Further than this, however, I think our Grand Lodge 
cannot go, for though we may regret that conditional recog- 
nition was accepted by our predecessors, who acted no doubt 
under circumstances peculiarly adverse, and at a time when the 
question of Grand Lodge sovereignty was not so prominent as 
in the present day, yet we are, I believe, bound honorably to 
carry out the agreement entered into by them, and which has 
remained undisturbed for nearly twenty-six years. 

CLANDESTINE MASONS. 

Shortly before the last Annual Communication of Grand 
Lodge complaint was made to M. W. Bro. Spry, that a person 
initiated in a clandestine lodge in this jurisdiction, had been 
pissed and raised in a lodge in the State of Connecticut. The 
Grand Secretary was instructed to lay the matter before the 
Grand Master of that State, who referred to it in his address 
as follows : 

"Sometime in July I received a complaint from the Grand Lodge of 
Canada that one of the lodges in this jurisdiction had conferred the Mas- 
ter Mason's degree upon a candidate who had received the E. A. and F. 
C. degrees in a lodge chartered by the spurious so-called Grand Lodge of 
Ontario. Upon examination, finding the complaint to be well founded, 
and that the lodge complained of had erred through ignorance of the clan- 
destine nature of that so-called Grand Lodge, I directed the Grand 



68 i. RAND LODGE OK CANADA. 

Secretary to make suitable explanation and apology to the M. W. Grand 
Lodge ni Canada, and on the first day of August issued a circnlar, calling 
the attention of the lodges in this jurisdiction to the fact that this so-called 
Grand Lodge of Ontario was a spurious and clandestine body, and direct- 
ing that from henceforth no lodge within this jurisdiction shall apply for 
release of jurisdiction over a candidate belonging in another State, except 
through the (band Master of this jurisdiction. The better to prevent the 
recurrence of any such case in the future, I recommend the passage of a 
permanent resolution of similar purport by this Grand Lodge." 

The following is a copy of the circular referred to: 

M. W. (IRANI) LODGE OF CONNETICUT, A. F. AND A. II. 
OFFICE OF THE GRAND MASTER, 

Stamford, August 1st, 1884. 

To the IV. M. Wat dens and Brethren : 

Brethren — It having come to the notice of the Grand Master that some 
of the lodges and brethren in this jurisdiction are not aware that there 
exists in the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Canada a spurious and 
clandestine body of freemasons, known as the Grand Lodge of Ontario, 
and that certain irregularities have occurred in consequence thereof ; and 
that inasmuch as the Grand Lodge of Connecticut, did, in 1879, declare 
"that it cannot recognize as regular masons those who have received the 
degrees in lodges not acknowledging the authority of the Grand Lodge 
legally established, and duly recognized by this Grand Lodge, over the 
territory in which said lodges are situated." 

Now, therefore, take notice, that you are hereby cautioned and forbidden 
holding masonic intercourse with any mason hailing from the so-called 
Grand Lodge of Ontario, or from any lodge acting under its authority, as 
they are not recognized by this Grand Lodge ; but but only those hailing 

from the Gi and Lodge of Canada, of which Right Worshipful Bro. John 

J, Mason, of Hamilton, is Grand Secretary. 

And it is hereby further ordered, that from henceforth no lodge within 
this jurisdiction shall apply for release of jurisdiction over candidates 
belonging in another state, except through the Grand Master of this- 
jurisdiction. 

In testimony whereof, we have caused the seal of our Grand Lodge to 
be affixed, at the city of Hartford, this 1st day of August, A. D. 18S4,. 
and of Masonry, 5884.

CLOSING REMARKS. 

It is gratifying at the end of my term to be able to announce 
that our fraternity is in a more flourishing condition than at 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 69 

any previous time in our history. Though two Grand Lodges, 
Quebec and Manitoba, have swarmed from the mother hive, 
we have more lodges on our register than ever before ; though 
envious and intolerant men have misrepresented and defamed 
our order, the membership of our lodges is steadily increasing ; 
though from year to year we have increased our benevolent 
gifts, the amount in the treasury is not lessened, our ability to 
aid those in distress is not impaired. 

While expressing our thanks to God for his goodness in the 
past, and praying for his continued favor, let us not forget that 
where much is given much also is required. Let us stren- 
uously endeavor to support the character of our profession as 
Free and Accepted Masons, by the practice of tolerance and 
forbearance towards those who differ from us, by forget- 
fulness and forgiveness of wrongs inflicted on us, by the exer- 
cise of charity and benevolence towards those having claims 
upon us, and by the honest performance of every trust, and 
thus prove to the world our attachment to the principles of the 
order. 

I desire to express my gratitude to the brethren for their 
uniform kindness. To M. W. Bro. Spry, Past Grand Master ; 
R. W. Bro. Henry Robertson, Deputy Grand Master ; R. W. 
Bro. Edward Mitchell, Grand Treasurer ; and to the D. D. G. 
Masters of the several districts, and the other officers of Grand 
Lodge, my thanks are due for the support and assistance ren- 
dered me during my term of office ; especially do I wish to 
acknowledge the debt of gratitude I owe to R. W. Bro. J. J. 
Mason, Grand Secretary, whose ability and zeal particularly 
fit him for the office he holds. In every instance he has faith- 
fully carried out the wishes of Grand Lodge and has rendered 
me material assistance. 

In returning to you the emblem of authority, I thank you 
for the great honor conferred upon me. I regard it as the 
highest honor that can be bestowed on any man, to be se- 
lected and elected Grand Master of the honorable fraternity 
of Free and Accepted Masons, and I assure you that to 
the best of my ability, I have without fear, faithfully, zealously 
and impartially endeavored to discharge my duties.

ST. CLAIR DISTRICT. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master and Members of 
the Grand Lodge of Canada. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren, — As required by 
the Constitution, I have the honor to submit for your consider- 
ation a report of my proceedings and the condition of Masonry 
in the St. Clair District for the current year. 

I have officially visited twenty-six lodges out of the thirty in 
the District, and found them in a fairly healthy condition ; 
and from the summons received from a large proportion of the 
lodges, am pleased to say that the Craft is steadily increasing 
in strength and influence throughout the District. 

The only obstacle appearing to interefere with the material 
prosperity of the work engaged in, and to be a source of weakness 
to lodges, is the arrearage of dues, which I believe is more the 
result of an over delicacy of the officers and members in 
carrying out the provisions of the Constitution and By Laws, 
that from an inability of the members to discharge their duties 
in that respect. 

As a result of such a course of management, we find a decay- 
ing, lukewarm and indifferent membership — while on the other 
hand, lodges carried on on business principles are enabled to 
maintain a healthy, vigorous enthusiasm amongst the members, 
and are exerting that influence in the community which natur- 
ally and justly belongs to Freemasonry. 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 7 I 

I have reasons to believe proper efforts are. being made to 
overcome their difficulty, and sincerely hope they will be entire- 
ly successful. 

At the request of the M. W. the Grand Master, I constituted 
Windsor Lodge, No. 403, and installed the officers under the 
warrant granted to that lodge, at last meeting of Grand Lodge, 
and consecrated and dedicated new lodge rooms for use of 
Thistle No. 34, Amherstburg. 

On the 28th of October last, I had the honor to represent 
the M. W. the Grand Master, at the laying of the corner stone 
of St. George's Episcopal Church at Ridgetown, County Kent. 
I w.is assisted by the officers of Howard Lodge No. 391, 
Highgate No. 336, Tecumseh 245, Thamesville, and a large 
representation of the craft from that part of the District. (A full 
report was furnished the Grand Secretary.) 

During the ceremony I was presented with a very handsome 
silver trowel, the voluntary contribution on behalf of St. George's 
congregation, by Masters Earnie and Percy Dean, sons of Bro. 
Dean of Howard Lodge. 

I have granted a number of dispensations for lodges to attend 
divine service, clothed as Masons, and am informed they were 
all well attended, and that everything was done decently and 
in order. 

I was requested to apply for a number of dispensations to 
allow lodges to instal officers on a day other than provided by 
by-laws — all of which were granted. 

The fees covering all the dispensations have been regularly 
accounted for to the Grand Secretary. 

During January last I had the pleasure of installing the offi- 
cers of seven lodges. 

I am sorry to report there is one lodge in the District in a 
dormant condition, especially so, as at one time it was noted 
for its brilliant work, and the enthusiasm of its members. I 
refer to Bothwell Lodge No. 179, Bothwell, but hope the efforts 
now being made will restore the lodge to its former position. 



72 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA. 

A number of Master Masons residing at Tilbury Centre 
petitioned for a dispensation to institute a lodge at that point. 
Unfortunately Parvaim Lodge No. 395 of Comber (the nearest 
lodge) refused to recommend it ; consequently the M. W. the 
Grand Master could not grant the dispensation. 

Tilbury Centre is a prosperous growing village on the Canada 
Southern Railway, about eight miles east of Parvaim Lodge at 
Comber. I am firmly of the opinion that legitimate Free- 
masonry would be greatly benefited and the Craft well served 
if a lodge were organized there. 

The so-called Grand Lodge of Ontario has a lodge at Tilbury 
Centre, and although the petitioners had been able to some- 
what interefere with the efforts of this spurious organization, 
they feel and experience great difficulty in battling with that 
carbuncle on the body of freemasonry, without the living pres- 
ence of a lawfully constituted lodge, drawing its life from the 
only recognized fountain of Masonic authority in this jurisdic- 
tion, the Grand Lodge of Canada. 

They have made application direct to Grand Lodge for a 
warrant or dispensation, and I must earnestly recommend that 
their request be granted. 

I am pleased to state that no serious complaint, appeal or 
constitutional question has been referred to me during the year, 
and believe the same spirit prevades the District that has always 
characterized it. 

I have only been informed of one death, that of W. Bro. 
Wilkinson of Thistle Lodge, No. 34, Amherstburg. 

In conclusion, I desire to express my sincere thanks to the 
brethren throughout the District where I visited, for their truly 
Masonic welcome, and for the liberal and generous manner in 
which they contributed towards my travelling and personal 
expenses ; and especially wish to convey my grateful feelings 
to R. W. Bro. Jamieson, P, D. D. G. M., of Watford; W. 
Bros. Rev. D. Armstrong, Mooretown, Sinclair and Trotter of 
Petrolia, and J. A. C. Anderson of Ridgetown, for their kind- 
ness and attention. 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 73 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

W. F. Miller, 

Walkerville, June 29th, 1S85. D. D. G. M. St. Clair District. 



LONDON DISTRICT. 

To the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master and Grand Lodge 
of A. F. 6° A.M., of Canada. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren, — In compliance 
with Grand Lodge requirements, I have the honor herewith to 
submit my report of the condition of Freemasonry in this 
District. Owing to the large number of Lodges included in 
the London District, it was with some degree of reluctance 
that I consented to undertake the arduous duties necessarily 
involved. I have, however, been able to visit twenty-one 
lodges, or about one-half of those constituting this large and 
rather unwieldy district. 

I am pleased to notice that the timely suggestion of my 
predecessor, R. W. Bro. H. G. Lindsay, in regard to redistri- 
bution, has been embodied in "notice of motion" by R. W. 
Bro. Dewar, and I trust that Grand Lodge will favorably 
consider the advisability of dividing and adjusting the Dis- 
trict, as therein recommended. Under existing circumstances 
it requires more time to properly attend to the requirements of 
forty lodges than any official can be reasonably expected to 
devote. 

Some of the lodges visited exhibit a most praiseworthy 
desire to carry on " the work " strictly in accordance with that 
recommended by the Grand Lodge. But I really think, under 
the present system of conveying that work to masters in large 
districts, the term of office will in some instances, have nearly 
expired before the proper official can complete his visits, and 
thus from year to year some lodges will continue to perpetuate 
the errors of their predecessors. 



74 GRAND l ' >DGE I >F I VNADA. 

With few exceptions of this kind, the lodges where I have 
visited work fairly well, and in some places considerable zeal 
is being manifested, not only in the general work of conferring 
degrees, but also in the noble effort towards " upholding and 
maintaining" that truly Masonic conduct among brethren, 
which is so desirable in all admirers of "the Golden Rule.'' 

I am sorry to find, however, some instances where lodges 
have violated the " established customs " in refertnce to 
Masonic jurisdiction, and in which the guilty parties have been 
exceedingly tardy in complying with the requirements of the 
Grand Lodge. Notably among .these are St. John's, 20, of 
London, and St Paul's, 107, Lambeth. Both of these lodges 
have, on their own showing, admitted this offence, and 
although I have recommended them through the Secretary to 
make proper restitution ; yet, up to my latest information, they 
had not done so. I therefore suggest that the matter receive 
the attention of the Board of General Purposes, and recom- 
mend that the said lodges stand suspended, until full compli- 
ance with the usual Masonic usages in such cases have been 
assured. 

This habit of violating the plain regulations in regard to juris- 
diction, is certainly to be deprecated, and unless promptly 
discouraged by Grand Lodge, must still continue to be a dis- 
agreeable source of irritation and ill-feeling among neighboring 
lodges. 

With the view of endeavoring to harmonize the work as 
much as possible, two lodges of instruction have been heldj 
one at St. Thomas and the other at Strathroy. A third was 
arranged for in London, but the lodges there having " called 
off" during the warm weather, the latter was unavoidably post- 
poned. Those held, however, were of a most representative 
character, being largely attended by delegates from surround- 
ing lodges. 

The three degrees were very ably exemplified at both places, 
while the sharp criticism and general discussions that ensued, 
were of the most practical and interesting nature to all present- 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 75 

I must say here, that it is my pleasing duty to acknowledge 
the very material interest attached to these meetings, by 
the presence of the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, 
and the Grand Secretary, — not only in consequence of the 
excellent opportunities thus afforded of acquiring needed infor- 
mation, but as well by force of example in the gentlemanly 
bearing and graceful dignity, which uniformly characterize the 
conduct of those distinguished brethren. 

A great deal of enthusiasm was evidently manifested in the 
ritualistic work, and much pleasure expressed by many at the 
exceedingly practical and lucid decisions rendered. The success 
of the instruction meetings must have convinced all present of 
their great utility in Craft Masonry — as tending more toward 
connecting the many varieties noticeable in different lodges than 
could be accomplished by a score of ordinary visits of the D. 
I). G. M. to individual lodges. 

I have also to report the formation of a new lodge at the vil- 
lage of Rodney, though of such recent date as to preclude the 
possibility of their obtaining a charter at the present meeting 
of Grand Lodge. The usual dispensation has however been 
granted, and the lodge regularly started with W. Bro. T. W. 
Kirk patrick (a very efficient P. M. of McColl Lodge 386) as 
First Master, and the members feel confident of success. 

Several special dispensations have been granted during the 
year, to various lodges to appear " clothed as masons " for the 
purpose of attending divine worship, festivals, etc. One such 
reception deserving more than passing notice, was held at 
Strathroy under the auspices of the local lodges Beaver and 
Euclid, at which a very large party, numbering over two hun- 
dred visiting brethren and their friends, from Lexington, Mich- 
igan were present and handsomely entertained. 

Before closing, I must take this opportunity of thanking the 
brethren of the District, for the very flattering vote electing me 
to so responsible a position, and I am only sorry that my pro- 
fessional duties prevented me to a certain extent from devoting 
as much time to the various lodges as my personal wishes 
would otherwise have inclined me. I am also under special 



7<> GRAND LODGE OF CANADA. 

obligation to many brethren in London, St. Thomas, Strathroy, 
Napier and other places, for their valuable assistance whenever 
solicited; and I am especially indebted to the District Secretary, 
W. Bro. J. C. Butler, for his kind and generous help on all 
occasions. 

All of which is most fraternally submitted.

WILSON DISTRICT. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master and Grand Lodge 
of A. F. & A. M. of Canada. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren, — In submitting a 
brief report on the condition of Masonry in the Wilson 
District for the past year, I have first to express my deep 
regret that through circumstances altogether beyond my con- 
trol, I have been unable to discharge the important duties 
appertaining to the office of D. D. G. M. as thoroughly and 
efficiently as I had intended, and as in the best interests of 
Masonry it is requisite they should be discharged. 

During the first half of the year I visited all the lodges in 
the county of Brant, five lodges in the county of Oxford, and 
one in Norfolk. Since then, owing to the death of a colleague, 
other important duties have so pressed upon me as to render 
it impossible that I could continue my official visitations. 

So far as I am enabled to do so I have pleasure in reporting 
that with one exception I found the Master and officers work- 
ing the ritual accurately aud well, and that the lodge rooms 
were all in good order and properly equipped. 

Two dispensations were granted for brethren to wear regalia 
at Divine Service and one for a banquet. 

A member of King Solomon's lodge, No. 43, having after 
due trial been found guilty of unmasonic conduct, his ex- 
pulsion from the order is recommended by the lodge. 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 77 

In reply to inquiry as to whether a Masonic lodge room, 
which has not been dedicated, might be let to another order 
for lodge purposes, I leplied that: i. To hold lodge in a 
room not dedicated is a great irregularity. 2. To use the 
room jointly with another society is improper. 3. That the 
irregularity does not justify the impropriety. 

On 1 2th May I gave a lecture, illustrated by magic lan- 
tern, to the Brantford lodges, on " Nature as Revealed by the 
Microscope and Camera." 

Whilst resigning my trust in the hope that my successor will 
have more time at his disposal for visiting the lodges in the 
district, permit me to express my thanks for the many honors 
my brethren have conferred upon me, and for the great kind- 
ness and courtesy they have at all times extended towards me. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted.

HURON DISTRICT. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, officers arid members 
of the Grand Lodge of A. F. 6° A. M. of Canada. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren, — -In compliance 
with the requirements of the Constitution of the Grand Lodge 
of Canada, I have the honor to submit the following brief 
report on the condition of Masonry, in the Huron District, 
during the twelve months it has been under my supervision. 

I regret very much that my professionaV duties and other 
circumstances have prevented me from visiting all the lodges 
in the District, there being twenty-eight. Of that number I 
have visited eighteen, and am pleased to say that so far as I 
have been able to learn, Masonry in this District is in a healthy 
and flourishing condition. Although no new lodges have been 
constituted, there has been a large acquisition to the member, 
ship of the lodges in the District. 



78 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA. 

At the request of the brethren of Tecumseh and Stratford 
Lodges, I held a Lodge ot Instruction in the City of Stratford, 
on the Sth of May, at which there was a very large attendance 
of the brethren ; the three degrees being very correctly exem- 
plified by W. Bros. Stanley, McLellan and Moran. I feel sat- 
isfied that not only a very pleasant, but a very profitable time 
was spent. 

At the request of the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, I 
dedicated the new hall of Maple Leaf Lodge, Tara, of which 
the brethren there have great reason to be proud, it being sec- 
ond to none in the District. After the ceremony was performed, 
I opened a lodge of instruction, when the first and third degrees 
were exemplified. 

I have granted dispensations to the brethren of the following 
lodges to appear in public clothed as Masons, namely : one to 
Zurich No. 224 to attend divine service, one to Clinton Lodge 
No. 84, to attend a Masonic banquet, one to Lebanon Forest 
Lodge No. 1 33, to attend a Masonic concert, and one to Bernard 
Lodge No. 225, to attend divine service. 

It affords me great pleasure in presenting this report, to be 
able to state that no complaint of any kind has been brought 
before me, which speaks very highly of the harmony that pre- 
vails amongst the brethren of the District ; long may it continue 
to be in the same happy condition. 

I cannot close my report without taking this opportunity of 
extending to R. W. Bros. D. II. Martyn and J. E. Harding 
my warmest thanks, for the valuable assistance given me by 
them, as well as to the brethren of the lodges I have had the 
pleasure of visiting, for the uniform kindness and courtesy with 
which they received me on all occasions. 

All of which is fraternally submitted.

WELLINGTON DISTRICT. 

To the Most Worshipful the Graud Master, Officers and Mem. 

hers of the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted 

Masons of Canada. 

Most Worshipful Grand Master and Brethren, — I beg 

to submit herewith my official report on the condition of 

Masonry in the Wellington District for the Masonic year just 

ended. 

I have officially visited nineteen of the twenty-one lodges in 
this district, and it affords me much pleasure to be able to 
state that in the majority of the lodges the work was thoroughly 
and correctly rendered. A few of the smaller lodges do not 
show that efficiency in working the degrees which I should 
have liked to see. There is, however, plenty of good material 
in these lodges, and I have no doubt that ere long they will be 
able to make as good a showing as is evinced by the larger 
ones. 

In this district we are called upon to mourn the deaths of 
R. W. Bro. S. S. McCormack, P. D. D. G. M. of this district, 
who died on or about the ist December, 1884 ; W. Bro. Wm. 
Kilgour, P. M. of St. Albans lodge, No. 200, Mount Forest, 
and six other brethren whose names were duly reported, all of 
whom were interred with Masonic honors. 

The following dispensations were duly granted : To Harris 
lodge, 216, Orangeville, for the purpose of attending a funeral 
service having special reference to the death of our late R. W. 
Bro. S. S. McCormack; to Guelph lodge, No. 258, Guelph, 
for the purpose of attending divine service, both of which, I 
am informed, were largely attended. 

In closing my report I wish to express my sincere thanks to 
the officers and brethren of this district for the very courteous 
and fraternal manner in which I was received on my official 
visits, and which will always be remembered by me. 

All of which is fraternally submitted.

GRAND LODGE OF CANADA. 

HAMILTON DISTRICT. 



To the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master and Grand Lodge 
of A. F. 6° A. M., of Canada. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren, — It affords me 
great pleasure indeed in presenting this my first report on the 
condition of Freemasonry in the Hamilton District, to be able 
to state that no complaint of any nature arising amongst the 
brethren has been brought before me, which certainly speaks 
very highly as to the harmony prevailing in this district. 



The Hamilton District comprises eighteen lodges, as follows 

6, Hamilton. 
27, 
40, 
57, Binbrook. 



Barton Lodge, No

400, Oakville. 



Each of these lodges I have visited officially, during my 
term of office, and have endeavored as far as possible during 
these visits, to instruct the brethren in the work prescribed by 
the Grand Lodge. 

On 27th December, 1884, assisted by the following brethren; 
R. W. Bro. R. L. Gunn, R. W. Bro. W. G. Reid, V. W. Bro. 
D. McPhie, V. W. Bro. C. R. Smith, W. Bro. C. Munro, W. 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 8l 

Bro. J. Malloy and W. Bro. J. Stiff, I installed the officers in 
Strict Observance Lodge, No. 27, St. John's Lodge, No. 40, 
Acacia Lodge, No. 61, and Temple Lodge, No. 324. 

On the 8th of January 1885, I installed the officers of St. 
Andrew's Lodge, No. 62, Caledonia, on which occasion I was 
favored with the presence of the Most Worshipful the Grand 
Master, who was most enthusiastically received by the brethren 
of that lodge. They expressed themselves as being highly 
delighted with a visit from the Grand Master, as it was the 
first time so distinguished a brother had honored them with his 
presence. 

On the 21st April last, I held a lodge of instruction in the 
Town of Milton, which was attended by a large gathering of 
the brethren, who expressed themselves as being well pleased 
as well as benefited by the proceedings. 

On the 29th April I held a lodge of instruction at Hamilton, 
which was in all respects a great success, especially so in point 
of attendance, nearly all the lodges in this District being repre- 
sented by one or more of its principal officers, the register 
bearing the signatures of over one hundred and forty brethren. 

The meeting was an exceedingly pleasant one, and I trust 
that those who attended with a view to perfecting themselves 
in the work, were amply rewarded for their time and trouble 
by the information imparted. I was very ably assisted on the 
two latter occasions by R. W. Bro. R. L. Gunn, R. W. Bro. 
\Y. G. Reid, W. Bro. C. W. Mulligan, W. Bro. C. Munro, W. 
Bro. J. Malloy, W. Bro. H. Sweetman, W. Bro. Thos. Irwin, 
V. W. Bro. G. Russell, W. Bro. E. Hill, and Bro. the Rev. 
Doctor Burns, together with many other well skilled brethren 
to all of whom I tender my warmest thanks for their services, 
particularly so to the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, who 
has been so courteous at all times in rendering me much valu- 
able assistance during my term of office, and not only to my- 
self but to every member of the Craft who needs his assistance, 
he is glad to give such advice as is required. I also tender 
my thanks to M. W. Bro. Seymour and R. W. Bro. Klotz, to 



82 GRAND LODGE OK CANADA. 

whom the brethren are indebted for their attendance at this 
lodge of instruction. 

On the 24th June I had the pleasure of installing the offi- 
cers in my " Mother" Lodge, the old Barton, No. 6, and also 
on the same evening of installing the officers of Doric Lodge 
No. 382. 

During the year I have granted the following dispensations : 
Two to St. Andrew's, Caledonia (one for the purpose of install- 
ing their officers on 8th January, and the other to attend divine 
service clothed in Masonic regalia on June 24) one to Barton 
Lodge for the purpose of attending divine service on the 21st 
June. And also one to Barton Lodge to appear in regalia at a 
band concert in the drill shed on 8th July. 

In conclusion I must again express my sincere thanks to the 
officers and brethren of the different lodges in this District for 
their uniform kindness to me when visiting them in my official 
capacity or as a member. I also beg to thank the brethren of 
the city lodges who have so willingly accompanied me when 
paying my visits to lodges at a distance, and especially to W. 
Bro. B. J. Morgan, who has performed the duties of District 
Secretary for me during the year, and who has done the work 
well and faithfully. 

All of which is fraternally submitted.

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master and Members of the 
Grand Lodge of A. F. 6° A. M. of Canada. 
Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren. — I have the honor 
to submit my second annual report on the condition of Mas- 
onry in the Niagara District : — 

During the first year of occupancy of the office of D.D.G. 
M., I visited every Lodge in the District ; this year I have 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 83 

been unable to do so, but have been in constant communica- 
tion with the different Lodges throughout the District, and I 
am pleased to report from information received, and from per- 
sonal knowledge that Masonry is in a very favorable condition. 

I had the honor of being accompanied by M. W. Bro. Mur- 
ray, the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, and R. W. Bro. 
Gavin Stewart, D.D.G.M., of the Hamilton District, on the oc- 
casion of my official visit to Enniskillen Lodge, No. 185, York, 
in December last. It is almost needless to remark that these 
distinguished brethren received a hearty and fraternal recep 
tion from the members of the Lodge, the kindness and hos- 
pitality of the brethren of Enniskillen Lodge being well known 
throughout the District. 

The brethren of Seymour Lodge, No. 277, Port Dalhousie, 
met with a serious loss by fire, having lost their warrant and 
furniture, in fact everything except their books, which fortun- 
ately were in possession of their excellent secretary, Bro. Green. 
I am pleased, however, to state that their effects were fairly 
covered by insurance, by which means they were not long in 
securing a new Hall, which the brethren have fitted up in an 
excellent manner, and which is a credit to the energy and fealty 
of the members. This Lodge has to mourn the loss of Bro. 
Capt. Reid, so long and favorably known in Port Dalhousie. 
Bro. Reid died very suddenly, and was buried with Masonic 
honors on 17th May last. I assisted the W. M. and brethren in 
the last sad rites, together with M. W. Seymour and a large 
number of brethren from St. Catharines and the surrounding 
district. 

The M. W. the Grand Master was pleased to appoint R. W. 
Bro. Mason, Grand Secretary, and myself, a commission to in- 
quire into certain irregularities that occurred in Merritt Lodge, 
No. 168, Welland, and upon examining the books at our dis- 
posal, we found that during the term of W. Bro. Elias H. Bur- 
gar's Mastership, he had retained a large amount of money be- 
longing to the Lodge, which at that time he refused to pay 
over, until the books were audited. I have been notified by 



84 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA. 

the Secretary that he has since given his note for one hundred 
and eighty dollars, payable in three months. 

By direction of the M. W. the Grand Master, I visited Tem- 
ple Lodge, No. 296, St. Catharines, in February last, whilst 
they were occupying a Hall in common with another organiza- 
tion, a difference having arisen between the Lodge and the 
Directors of the Masonic Temple. After pointing out to them 
the unconstitutionality of their proceedings, in using a hall 
with another body, a committee was appointed by the Lodge 
to settle the matter in dispute, which I am happy to say was 
amicably effected through the kind offices of W. Bro. Dr. Oille, 
on the one hand, and M. W. Bro. Seymour on the other, and 
the Lodge returned to its original quarters in the Masonic Tem- 
ple, where the Lodge was organized and from which it derived 
its name. It is to be hoped that not only this lodge, but all 
of the Masonic bodies may remain within its beautiful walls 
whilst the building stands. 

On St. John the Evangelist Day, I installed the W. M. and 
officers of Ivy Lodge, No. 115, Beamsville, and from long per- 
sonal knowledge of its officers I can safely say that this Lodge 
will continue to advance as it has done in the past. I had many 
kind invitations to visit other Lodges on the same evening but 
was unable to do so. 

I granted a dispensation to Copestone Lodge, No. 373, 
Welland, to appear in Masonic Regalia at a public entertain, 
ment in the Town of Welland, and the amount received for such 
was paid over to the Grand Secretary. 

At the request of the brethren of King Solomon's Lodge, 
No. 329, Jarvis, I had the pleasure of dedicating and conse- 
crating their new Lodge Room on the festival of John the Bap- 
tist. The hall, which they have leased for ten years, is very 
commodious, much larger and better situated than their old 
hall, and the members deserve credit for the manner in which 
they have it fitted up and furnished it. I was afterwards enter- 
tained at Bro. Hills, by the members of the Lodge accom- 
panied by their ladies, when a very pleasant hour or two was 
spent by all present. 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885 85 

On 28th June last, the brethren of St. Catharines and the 
surrounding District attended Divine Service in St. George's 
Church, St. Catharines. The attendance was large and the 
brethren had the pleasure of listening to an able, eloquent and 
instructive sermon by Bro. the Rev. E. M. Bland, to my 
mind the most appropriate Masonic discourse I have ever had 
the pleasure of listening to, and well worthy of publication in 
the Masonic press. There was a large amount collected at 
the end of the service for the benefit of the Protestant Home. 

In retiring from the position of D.D.G.M. I sincerely desire 
to thank the brethren of the District for the kindness and 
courtesy at all times so freely extended to me; to those brethren 
who accompanied me in my official visits I am deeply indebted ; 
to the M. W. the Grand Master I desire to express my per- 
sonal esteem, for the valuable advice given me on all occasions, 
and to R. W. Bro. Mason, Grand Secretary, I am as in the 
past under many obligations for the friendship and assistance 
rendered by him, not only during the past two years whilst 
holding the position of D.D.G.M., but ever since I have had 
the honor of being a Mason, 

All of which is fraternally submitted.

TORONTO DISTRICT. 

lo the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and Mem- 
bers of the Grand Lodge oj A. F. cr A. M. of Canada. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren, — In accordance 
with the requirements of the Constitution of Grand Lodge, I 
have the honor to submit my report on the condition of Masonry 
in the Toronto District. 

On accepting the office of District Deputy Grand Master for 
the Toronto District last year, I was led to believe that it would 
be more satisfactory to the lodges in the District as well as to 



86 (.KANIi LODGE OK CANADA. 

myself personally, to make a tour of the lodges at the earliest 
moment, instead of deferring such visits to the closing months of 
my term of office, so that during the year just closed I have been 
enabled to pay over 40 official visits, having visited nearly all 
the lodges in the District, and find them with very few excep- 
tions in a healthy and satisfactory condition, the books well 
kept, the ritual closely followed, and the officers performed 
their work very creditably. 

My reception by all the lodges has been extremely agreeable 
and courteous, and I shall not soon forget the kindness and 
consideration shown to me in every part of the District. 

Owing to the satisfactory manner in which the work is per- 
formed in most of the lodges of this District, a lodge of 
instruction did not seem to me to be necessary this year. 

Financially most of the lodges are in good condition, but the 
amount of dues outstanding is very large. Indeed this is much 
to be regretted, for as a consequence it necessitates the sus- 
pension of a large number of brethren whose usefulness 
might be saved to the Craft if the W. Masters would not allow 
these dues to accumulate without making an effort to collect 
the amounts which, when small, can in a majority of cases be 
easily collected ; whereas, if allowed to accumulate, collection 
becomes an impossibility and suspension must follow. This 
difficulty might be overcome if an amount sufficient for life 
membership were to be added to the initiation fee ; and I 
would respectfully suggest that Grand Lodge take this matter 
into its serious consideration. 

During the year I have installed the officers of the following 
lodges : Ionic, 25 ; Rehoboam, 65 ; Wilson, 86 ; Ashlar, 247 ; 
Blackwood, 311 ; Alpha, 384, and found the various Masters 
well skilled. 

On the 8th November last I received a communication from 
the M. W., the Grand Master, directing me to enquire and 
report on certain irregularities said to have been committed by 
the W. Master of Rehoboam Lodge, No. 65, and associated 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. S7 

with me in this commission R. W. Bros. Menet, Saunders and 
Sargent. 

I accordingly summoned witnesses and proceeded with the 
enquiry, which was both lengthy and tedious, (extending over 
many meetings), and reported in full the whole of the evidence 
to the Grand Master. On the 2nd of January, 1885, the 
G. M., after mature deliberation, forwarded his ruling to me 
through the G. Secretary, ordering it to be read in open lodge 
and entered in full on the minutes of Rehoboam Lodge. 
The ruling was in substance as follows : That the charges had 
been sustained, and that W. Bro. David Hill Watt was sus- 
pended from all the rights, privileges and benefits of Masonry, 
and all the papers and evidence were to be referred to the 
Board of General Purposes of Grand Lodge. 

On February 18, 1885, Bro. W. Fitzgerald, late secretary of 
Rehoboam lodge, wrote me a full confession of his connection 
with W. Bro. D. H. Watt in the above charges, which only 
went to prove how just the ruling of the Grand Master was. 

On May 7, 1885, Bro. William Fitzgerald, late secretary of 
Rehoboam lodge was placed on trial before his lodge for 
having placed upon the Minute Book of the lodge a false 
minute. Upon vote of the lodge he was declared guilty, but 
the lodge decided that on account of extenuating circum- 
stances his punishment should be a reprimand, which was 
forthwith administered by the W. Master. 

On April 9, 1885, Bro. John Harrison, a member of King 
Solomon's lodge, No. 22, was placed on trial before his lodge, 
charged with being an " Agnostic, Secularist, and Freethinker, 
and being such had religious views and opinions not consistent 
with the doctrines and principles of Freemasonry." Upon a 
vote of the lodge he was declared guilty, and the punishment 
inflicted was indefinite suspension. 

I granted the following dispensation to lodges to appear in 
Masonic clothing at concerts and conversaziones : 



88 GRAND L0DG1 OF CANADA. 

December 29, 1884, Zeredatha lodge, 220 

January 7, 1885, Zetland " 326

20, " Wilson " 86 

February 13, " Alpha " 384 

" 16, " Doric " 316 

17, " York " 156 

I also granted dispensations to Humber Lodge, No. 305, 
Weston, to install their officers at a meeting other than that 
laid down in their by-laws ; and to Humber lodge, No. 305, 
Weston, and Ionic Lodge, No. 25, Toronto, to attend divine 
service clothed as Masons. 

At the last communication of Grand Lodge the Committee 
on the Condition of Masonry alluded to an alleged offence in 
the shape of a discourteous and unmasonic reply from the W. 
Master and also from the Secretary of Richmond lodge, No. 
23, Richmond Hill, to the Past D. D. G. M. of this District. 
I took the first opportunity of visiting that lodge, accompanied 
by R. W. Bros. Menet and Saunders, and V. W. Bro. Pearcy. 
My reception by the lodge was most courteous. They dis- 
claimed any intention of disrespect either to the late D. D. 
G. M. or to the Grand Lodge, and stated that the W. Master 
had personally seen the late D. D. G. M. and fully explained 
the whole matter. Under the circumstances I was satisfied 
with their explanation. 

One of the most pleasing incidents during my term of office 
was the visit of the M. W. the Grand Master to the Toronto 
District, on the occasion of consecrating and dedicating the 
new Masonic Hall for Alpha Lodge, No. 384, Parkdale, the 
foundation stone of which was laid with Masonic ceremonies 
by M. W. P. Grand Master Spry in September, 1883. After 
the Grand Lodge Had been opened in ample form, 2nd the 
very pretty room consecrated with corn, wine and oil, the 
brethren formed in procession and marched to the main hall 
of the building. Between 400 and 500 ladies and gentlemen 
were present, and the rich dresses of the former, the regalia of 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 89 

the brethren, and the gay decorations of the room, made up a 
beautiful scene, not soon to be forgotten. 

Application was made to me by certain brethren for a dis- 
pensation to institute a new lodge in Parkdale. After taking into 
consideration the various aspects of the case, and the require- 
ments of the Constitution having been complied with, I recom- 
mended the application, when after due consideration the 
Grand Master ordered the issue of the dispensation. On the 
28th May I had the pleasure of opening the new lodge 
called Antiquity, which commences its Masonic career 
under most favorable auspices, and handed over the dispensa- 
tion to R. W. Bro. T. Sargent the W. Master elect. 

In the month of May last my attention was called to the 
hour at which King Solomon's Lodge, No. 22, was called to 
meet, namely 7:30 a.m. I at once wrote the W. Master of 
that Lodge that I considered the hour an unreasonable one, 
and if the candidates whose names were on the circular for 
ballot were accepted, they must not be initiated until per 
mission was given so to do. In reply I received a very 
courteous letter from the W. Master of that Lodge, stating 
that my commands should be faithfully obeyed. I at the same 
time received a communication from the M. W. the Grand 
Master, drawing my attention to the above unreasonable hour 
at which the Lodge was called, and telling me in substance 
what I had already communicated to W. Bro. Pearson. I may 
add that the candidates whose names were on that circular 
were not balloted for or initiated at that early meeting. 

In the month of June last the brethren of Orient Lodge, 
No. 339, applied for a dispensation to appear in Masonic 
regalia on the occasion of laying the corner stone of their new 
hall, at which ceremony on the 30th June the M. W. the 
Grand Master officiated, assisted by Deputy G. M., G. S. W._ 
G. Treasurer, Grand Secretary, Grand Organist, and about 
200 brethren of the several lodges of the district. 

Before closing this report I beg to tender to the brethren 
with whom I have been associated during my term of office, 



<JO GRAND LODGE OF CANADA. 

nay best thanks for the more than kind manner in which they 
have treated me at all times, and for counsel cheerfully given 
whenever sought ; and without being invidious, I would make 
mention of R. W. Bro. H. Robertson, Deputy Grand Master, 
and R. VV. Bro. J. J. Mason, Grand Secretary, whose large and 
varied experience and comprehensive knowledge have always 
been at my disposal. And I may further state that if I have 
succeeded in discharging the duties of my office with accept- 
ance to the brethren in the district, my success has been 
largely due to the able and zealous co-operation of V. W. Bro. 
Sanderson Pearcy, whom it has been my good fortune to have 
associated with me as District Secretary.

GEORGIAN DISTRICT. 

lo Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and Members 
of Grand Lodge of A. F. 6° A. M. of Canada. 

Most W. Sir and Brethren, — The first report (which I 
have now the honor of submitting) to you of my opinion of the 
state of Masonry in the Georgian District, will at least contain 
the merit of being founded upon the experience which a per- 
sonal visit to every lodge in the District will permit. 

There are twenty-five lodges working under warrants and 
two U. D. This District is probably the most extensive to 
visit of any under the jurisdiction ot the Grand Lodge of 
Canada, and I have endeavored to reward the confidence 
reposed in me by the brethren, by making up in zeal, what 
probably I lack in judgment, in my direction of the affairs of 
the craft in the District. ' 

The brethren of Georgian Lodge, No. 348, Penetanguishene,. 
suffered a loss through fire, but with proper forethought, in 
insuring, were enabled to furnish and equip the lodge at once 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 1S85. 91 

And I congratulate the brethren of that lodge on their taste 
and enterprise evident in the lodge appointments. On the 
7th of Jan., by the authority of the Most Worshipful, the Grand 
Master and with the assistance of V. W. Bro. Jennings and W. 
Bro. Buckley, I consecrated and dedicated their Lodge Room 
to Freemasonry. 

On the 24th of Feb., by authority from the Grand Master 
and with the assistance of W. Bros. Stephens, Clark and Patter- 
son, I consecrated and dedicated Spry Lodge, No. 385, Beeton. 
The brethren of that lodge with commendable zeal, having 
leased more commodious apartments. 

During the year I issued the following dispensations : — 

The Orillia Lodge, No. 192, and Thorn Lodge, No. 281, 
Orillia, to appear clothed as Masons, for the purpose of attend- 
ing Divine Service on Sunday Oct. 5. 

Kerr Lodge, No. 230, Barrie, to appear in public, clothed as 
Masons for the purpose of holding a conversazione in the Town 
Hall, Barrie, Feb. n. 

Granite Lodge, No. 352, Parry Sound, to appear in public 
clothed as Masons for the purpose of holding a conversazione 
in a public building, Feb. 27. 

Golden Rule Lodge, U. D., Gravenhurst, to appear in pub- 
lic, clothed as Masons for the purpose of attending Divine 
Service, Sunday June 21. 

Lome Lodge, No. 377, Shelbourne, to appear in public 
clothed as Masons, for the purpose of attending divine service, 
Sunday, June 28. 

Orillia Lodge, No. 192, Orillia, to appear in public clothed 
as Masons for the purpose of attending a picnic on St. John's 
Day, June 24. 

Kerr Lodge, No. 230, Barrie, to appear in public, clothed as 
Masons for the purpose of attending a picnic. 

Manito Lodge, No. 90, Collingwood, to appear in public, 
clothed as Masons, for the purpose of attending Divine Service,.

92 CRAM) LODGE OK CANADA. 

It is a subject of congratulation to members of the craft, 
for me to be able to state, that notwithstanding a commercial 
depression and an unusual multiplication of other secret socie- 
ties, every lodge in my district seems to be in a healthy con- 
dition, and Grand Lodge will shortly be requested to grant 
warrants to two lodges now working U. D. Applications from 
two other localities have also been received by me for dispen- 
sations. 

The brethren of Manitoba Lodge, No. 236, Bond Head, by 
resolution and petition requested me to allow them to remove 
the warrants to the Village of Cookstown, and for good and 
sufficient reasons I authorized the change to be made. 

In my official capacity I have taken occasion to counsel the 
brethren to secure themselves against loss by fire, by insuring 
judiciously. I have further endeavored to impress the breth- 
ren with the strong recommendations of Grand Lodge in re- 
ference to occupying halls jointly with other societies. 

I am strongly of the opinion that dispensations for new 
lodges should not be granted to every small settlement in our 
sparsely settled country, and while sympathising with those 
enthusiastic Masons who happen to reside in such places, my 
experience is that Masonry, the grandest of all secret societies, 
is jeopardised by D. D. G. M's. sanctioning the formation of 
lodges in such localities, and in my opinion Grand Lodge 
should consider the advisibility of making it compulsory that 
petitions for new lodges should be signed by a larger number 
of applicants. 

While some Districts have to mourn the loss of brave men, 
some of them of the craft, as a consequence of the unfortunate 
rebellion in the N. W., thanks are due and are hereby expressed 
to the G. A. O. T. U. for this great mercy vouchsafed volun- 
teers from our vicinity, amongst whom are some prominent 
members of the Craft. 

Death has dealt leniently with our brethren here, still the 
craft bears a great loss in the sudden death of W. Bro. Switzer, 
of Granite Lodge, No. 352, Parry Sound, who without a mo- 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 93 

meat's warning was summoned to the Grand Lodge above. 

To the brethren of the District I tender my sincere thanks 
for their uniform generosity and courtesy. To them I am 
indebted for making my term of office as D. D. G. M. the most 
pleasant period of my Masonic life. With a single exception 
I have been assisted in the discharge of my onerous duties by 
as loyal, enthusiastic and intelligent corps of W. M.'s as any 
D. D. G. M. could wish to meet. The exception being the 
W. M. of Unity lodge, No. 376, Huntsville, who, on the 
occasion of my official visit, (though I believe in the village), 
not only absented himself from the lodge without apology, but 
in answer to a letter from me pointing out a few of the many 
things that were slovenly and required in the lodge, forgot to 
reply in gentlemanly terms, and also forgot (if he knew) that 
he was addressing the Grand Master and Grand Lodge of 
Canada through me as their representative. 

I cannot close my report to Grand Lodge without expressing 
my gratitude to M. W. Past G. M. Spry for his valuable advice 
so freely bestowed at all times when required. 

Fraternally submitted.

ONTARIO DISTRICT. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Mastet, Officers and Mem- 
bers of Grand Lodge, A. F. 6° A. M 'of Canada. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren, — I have the honor 
to submit my official report on the condition of Masonry in 
Ontario District for the past year. 

Although most anxious to do so, I have not been able to 
visit every lodge in the District. Its great extent makes it very 
difficult. 

I have, however, visited a good number and in different 
parts, and am gratified to be able to report favorably. Work 



94 GRAM) I CANADA. 

was fairly well done in all, and in some, and I may say with truth, 
•n many instances, could not be excelled for accuracy and 
impressiveness. 

Generally, 1 found the books were kept efficiently and in an 
orderly manner, requiring no comment from me. 

I have received during the year from the various lodges their 
usual monthly summons and have found no irregularities, conse- 
quently I believe those which I had not an opportunity of 
visiting, are in a satisfactory condition. 

The membership of the District has increased considerably 
during the year, the new members being in many cases excep- 
tionally good. The suspensions for nonpayment of dues have 
been comparatively few, all of which is most gratifying. 

It gives me great pleasure also, to be able to say that very 
few complaints have been submitted to me. Of these, only one 
appeared likely to be serious, but at the request of the Most 
Worshipful the Grand Master, I paid a special visit to the Lodge 
in question, and fortunately was successful in restoring harmony 
among the brethren. 

During the past summer, a dispensation for a lodge in the 
village of Fenelon Falls, to be called " Spry Lodge," was for- 
warded to me by the Grand Secretary. Not being able to 
attend personally to instituting the lodge, owing to urgent pri- 
vate business. I deputed W. Bro. J. W. Wallace, of Lindsay, 
a well skilled Past Master, to act for me. The new lodge had 
a most auspicious commencement and has been working very 
satisfactorily since, 

In February last, I visited Beaverton for the purpose of 
organizing another new lodge in the District, to be called " Mur- 
ray Lodge," meeting in the village of Beaverton. There was 
a very large attendance of brethren from the neighboring 
lodges, and the new lodge was inaugurated with most gratifying 
success. Several applications for affiliation and also for initia- 
tion were received, and a prosperous future appears to be before 
the Murray Lodge. 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 95 

The position of Colbome and Excelsior Lodges at Colborne 
continues unchanged. Nothing has been done during the 
year, as recommended by my predecessor, R. W. Bro. Odell, of 
Oshawa. I also respectfully advise that the warrant of Excel- 
sior Lodge be cancelled by Grand Lodge. 

I issued four dispensations for brethren to appear in Masonic 
clothing, one at a social gathering in lodge room, one at a 
lecture, and two at divine service. 

I had the honor of being present at an especial communica- 
tion of Grand Lodge in the town of Lindsay, on the ist of the 
present month, when the Most Worshipful the Grand Master 
laid the corner stone of the Episcopal Church with Masonic 
honors, in the presence of a large concourse of brethren. 

In conclusion, I desire to thank the brethren of the District, 
for the unvarying kindness with which I have been received, 
and assure them that I look back on my official visits during 
the year with unalloyed pleasure. 

I am conscious that my duty has been often very imperfectly 
performed, and trust to the generous forbearance of the breth- 
ren to overlook my shortcomings and to believe that the earnest 
wish to render efficient service in my official capacity has never 
been wanting. 

All of which is fraternally submitted.

PRINCE EDWARD DISTRICT. 

Jo the Most Worshipful Grand Master, Officers and Members 
of the Grand Lodge of Canada. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren, — In presenting my 
second annual report on the condition of Masonry in Prince 
Edward District, it affords rue much pleasure in reporting the 
continued prosperity of the Craft. 



g6 c.KANI) LODGE OF CANADA. 

My efforts to induce some of the lodges to secure better 
accommodation, and if possible, exclusive occupancy of their 
lodge rooms, has been met in a truly commendable spirit. 
Stirling Lodge, No. 69, has completed and furnished one of the 
finest halls in the District. Marmora Lodge, No. 222, and 
Mystic Lodge, No. 278, Roslin, have halls in course of con- 
struction, which, when completed, will be a credit to the Craft. 
This will make nine Masonic halls in Prince Edward District 
that are owned by their occupants, and are devoted to their 
intended object. 

Having made during my former year of office, a thorough 
inspection of the lodges in this District, I was in a position to 
know the ones that would require the most attention, and to 
those were my visits confined, in some instances visiting the 
same lodges two and three times. 

I have during the year installed the officers of five lodges, 
and granted one dispensation, for which due return has been 
made. 

There is but one complaint pending in this District, but 
owing to the dilatoriness of the lodge, my successor will have 
to adjust the matter. 

In concluding the labors of the office to which the brethren 
of Prince Edward District unanimously elected me, I take this 
opportunity of returning to them my hearty thanks for the 
warm and cordial greetings which have been extended to me 
when on my official visits. 

All of which is fraternally submitted.

ST. LAWRENCE DISTRICT. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and Mem- 
bers of the Grand Lodge of A. F. &> A. M. of Canada. 
Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren, — In accordance 
with the Constitution, I beg most respectfully to report on the 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 58S5. 97 

condition of Freemasonry, as I have found it in St. Lawrence 
District during my term of office as D. D. G. M. 

In this District there are, as you are aware, twenty-eight 
lodges, twenty of which I visited officially, and in almost every 
instance I have found that the lodges are working as nearly as 
possible to the ritual, and keep their records in a very creditable 
manner. 

I did intend to visit all the lodges in this District, but found 
that it was impossible to accomplish the task. I have, during 
my term of office, made a specialty of visiting all the rural 
lodges, a number of which complained that they had not 
received annual official visits. In visiting the number of lodges 
above named, I have travelled one thousand and six miles, 
notwithstanding which fact there are still eight lodges which I 
was unable to visit; this goes to show that this District is too large 
for one person to do justice to, and I therefore recommend 
that a division be made in it, and another D. D. G. M appoint, 
ed, so that each lodge could be officially visited at least once 
every year. 

I would most respectfully call your attention to a portion of 

p 
section 3, page 31, Book of Constitution, which says, " it shall 

be the duty of the District Deputy Grand Master to visit all 

the lodges in his District, during his term of office, to see that 

such lodges are working in accordance with the ritual adopted 

by Grand Lodge." 

I find that a few of the lodges are without the ritual, although 
working creditably, considering the difficulties they have had 
to contend against, and would therefore recommend that such 
lodges be granted a ritual on application. 

I hate to report having received an application from a num- 
ber of brethren requesting the formation of a new lodge in the 
village of Maxwell in this District, in the county of Glengarry, 
but as the necessary fee did not accompany such application, 
I declined to recommend it when forwarding the same to 
the Grand Secretary. 



98 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA. 

I have installed the officers in the following lodges during 
the past year, viz. :

DISPENSATIONS. 

I have granted the following dispensations, viz. : Simpson

4th, 1885; Leeds Lodge, No. 201, Gananoque, to install 
officers January 13th, 1885 ; Cornwall Lodge, No. 125, Corn-

to attend divine service, June 28th, 1885 ; Sussex Lodge, No. 
5, Brockville, to attend divine service, June 28th, 1885. 

No questions of any importance have been submitted to me 
for my consideration by any of the lodges, although I have had 
a large amount of correspondence with several of them, and I 
am glad to be able to state that the utmost harmony exists 
amongst all the lodges within my jurisdiction.

kindness, and the good wishes of which I have been the recipi- 
ent, and I feel that in honoring me they have in reality been 
honoring the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master, whose 
humble representative I am, and I trust that they will extend 
to my successor the same kindly feeling of sympathy and 
Masonic intercourse which they have so frequently extended, 
fraternally, towards myself and the brethren who so kindly ac- 
companied me on every occasion. 

All of which is fraternally submitted.

OTTAWA DISTRICT. 

To the M. IV. Grand Master, Officers and Members of the 
Grand Lodge of A. F. &> A. M. of Canada. 

M. W. Sir and Brethren, : — In accordance with the Con- 
stitution I beg to submit my report on the Condition of Mas- 
onry in the Ottawa District. 

During the past year I have visited every lodge in my dis- 
trict with the exception of three, and would have visited those 
also had I received a notice of any of their meetings. 

On the 8th of August last, by command of the M. W. the 
Grand Master, I had the honor and pleasure of dedicating the 
new hall for "True Britons," No. 14, at Perth. On this visit 
I was "royally" received by the brethren of Perth and vicinity. 



IOO GRAND LODGE OF CANADA. 

In this connection I have the greatest pleasure to state that 
whereas prior to this visit there were two lodges in Perth, 
neither of which were in any too prosperous a condition, there 
is now but one, the two having amalgamated under the name 
of the oldest, "True Briton," No. 14, which now forms a very 
strong and harmonious lodge. 

In all the lodges that I have visited I found the work well 
performed, books well and properly kept, and the lodges gen- 
erally in a healthy condition. 

I am pleased to be able to state that no complaints have 
been laid before me during my term of office. 

The usual dispensations for the brethren to appear in public 
clothed as Masons have been granted upon proper occasions. 

There is one lodge in my district which has been working 
for the past fifteen months under dispensation. I refer to the 
"Mattawa." I visited this lodge on the 29th of May last and 
found that, under the Mastership of the Rev. C. V. Bliss, the 
lodge is progressing very favorably and the work very well 
done, and I have great pleasure in recommending that a war-. 
rant be granted to this lodge at the ensuing meeting of Grand 
Lodge. 

I have had the pleasure of installing the W. M's and offi- 
cers of the following lodges during the past year : Doric, No. 
58 ; Civil Service, No. 148; Chaudiere, No. 264, and Prince of 
Wales, No. 371, all of Ottawa ; Mississippi, No. 147, Almonte ; 
and Renfrew, No. 122, Renfrew. 

During the year I have been officially notified of three 
deaths in my district which have no doubt been duly reported 
to Grand Secretary. In this connection, I may refer to the 
burial services under the direction of "True Britons," No 14, 
of Perth, of our late Brother A. W. Kippen, (who so heroic- 
ally sacrificed his life in defence of the laws and honor of our 
country on the battlefield at Batoche), which were attended 
by over 300 of the brethren of this district, and were a credit- 
able tribute to the memory of one who so truly deserved it. 

In conclusion. I beg to tender to all the brethren of this 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. IOI 

district my most sincere and hearty thanks for the universal 
courtesy and kindness that I have received from each and all 
with whom I have come in contact, and that I shall always 
remember with pleasure the year that I occupied the office of 
D. D. G. M. of the Ottawa District. 

All of which is fraternally submitted.

Regarding the application of Middlesex Lodge, No. 379, 
Bryanston, asking for a new Warrant (free of cost) to replace 
the old one which was defaced by the floods of July, 1883, 
the Board recommend that upon the return of the old War- 
rant to the Grand Secretary, a new one be issued to them 
free of cost. 

With respect to the applications of Leamington Lodge, No. 
290, and Delaware Valley Lodge, No. 358, asking for remission 
of dues owing this Grand Lodge, they having lost their furni- 
ture by fire. The board desire to report (as on former instan- 
ces) that these applications cannot be entertained. It is clearly 
the duty of the officers of any lodge to see that the furniture 
and paraphernalia are properly insured. 

The Board notice that several lodges have not complied with 
the requirements of the Constitution, with respect to returns 
and remittances, and recommend that the Grand Secretary be 
directed to call the attention of the lodges referred to to the 
matter, and to notify them that they will be required to appear 
before the Board at the next annual meeting to show cause why 
their several Warrants should not be forfeited. 

It was moved by R. W. Bro. Henry Robertson, seconded by 
R. W. Bro. Thos. Sargant, and 

Resolved, — That the Report of the Board on Audit and Finance be 
be received and adopted.

various changes in the pecuniary condition of those parties 
since the last preceding equalization ; I prepared such lists, 
and the committee has made the equalization ; in these lists 
such names have been omitted of parties on whose behalf no 
aid has been asked since 1882, viz : 

1. A list of 36 Brethren showing ages and grants.

$15.00 ; No. 306, $18.50 ; No. 304, $30 ; No. 314, $22.00 

And those lodges which, by their " returns," do only show 
the monies received from Grand Lpdge for special grants and 
paid over to the parties to whom such grants were made, but 
do not show that they, the Lodges, have raised any money by 
local contributions for benevolent purposes, are the following, 
viz : Nos. 24, 29, 30, 34, 37, 55, 73, 74, 80, 81, 88, 93, 106, 
109, 116, 126, 135, 161, 176, 209, 216, 241, 262, 266, 311, 
329. The lodges which are still in default in making the 
" return " to Grand Lodge of grants which were made payable 
through the Worshipful Masters, as required to be made by 
Grand Lodge rule, are the following : Returns due for grants 
made in 1879 by Lodge No. 15 ; in 1880, Nos. 92 and 353 ; 
in 1881, Nos. 77, 179 and 312 ; in 1882, Nos. 15, 159, 168, 
215, 217 and 289 ; in 1883, Nos. 39, 218, 284, 321 and 354. 
While the following Lodges are in default in making 
"returns" for grants made in 1884, viz : Nos. 14, 36, 82, 
125, 136, 154, 168, 196, 215, 225, 265, 270, 282, 307, 346. 

Making in all 32 lodges from which " returns " are past due, 
in consequence of which future grants will not be paid until 
such " returns '' are properly made. 

Among the numerous applications for relief four have been 
rejected, as they were not considered entitled to Grand 
Lodge aid. 

The Local Board of Relief of the City of Toronto, referred 
to the Board of General Purposes, a petition from the Direct- 



i 2 i GRAND LODGE 01 CANADA. 

! the Orphans' Home i:i Toronto, praying for funds in 
behalf of a number of orphans of deceased masons, maintained 
by that " Home," the claim being for 8 orphans now in the 
home, also for a mason's widow and her two boys, who were 
there some time ago. The claim made by said Orphans' Home 
may be briefly stated as follows, viz. : $ioo per year for every- 
one of said parties, from time of admission, which would make : 

4 Orphans of Gregory, each 3 years (2 $100 $1200 

2 " Macpherson, " 5 " Qi 100 1000 

2 " Fisher " 4 " @ 100 8co 

Widow iMessia, " 1^ " (« 100 150 

2 Orphans of " " z\ " @ 100 300 

Grant claimed for time passed, $3450 ; grant claimed for 8 
orphans @ $100 ; $Soo per annum, till they leave the "Home." 

The Board consider that the claim cannot be entertained ; 
not only is the amount altogether beyond the means at the 
disposal of the Grand Lodge for benevolent purposes ; but 
there is no rule of Grand Lodge, which would authorize the 
Board to entertain the petition, and that therefore, the same 
be returned to the Local Board of Relief of Toronto. 

OTTO KLOTZ, 

Chairman. 

It was moved by R. W. Bro. Henry Robertson, seconded 
by R. \V. Bro. Otto Klotz, and 

Resolved, — That the Report of the Board on Benevolence be adopted. 
NOTICE OF MOTION. 

R. W. Bro. Klotz gave notice that on to-morrow he would 
move that the sum of $7,000 be taken from the General Funds 
of Grand Lodge and placed to the credit of the Benevolent 
Fund — current account. 

REPORT OF THE BOARD ON JURISPRUDENCE. 

R. W. Bro. Henry Robertson, on behalf of the Board, pre- 
sented and read the following 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. I 25 

REPORT : 

The Board beg leave to present; the following report on juris- 
prudence. 

The Board has received a communication from the Secre- 
tary of Ottawa Masonic Hall Committee, inquiring if ii is in 
accordance with the principles of Grand Lodge to allow Phoenix, 
Rose Croix Chapter, No. 27, of Sovereign Sanctuary of Royal 
and Oriental Freemasonry, to hold their meetings in the Mas- 
onic Hall. 

At the Annual Communication held in 1874, Grand Lodge 
held that it was improper for lodge rooms to be used jointly 
with other societies, or for other than Masonic purposes. The 
Grand Lodge of Canada does not recognize the Sovereign 
Sanctuary of Royal and Oriental Freemasonry as being a Mas- 
onic body. 

The Board are of opinion, however, that these rulings need 
not be construed so strictly as to prevent the Sovereign Sanc- 
tuary and other bodies, claiming to be Masonic and founded on 
Craft Masonry, from using Masonic halls and lodge rooms for 
their meetings. 

It was moved by R. W. Bro. Henry Robertson, seconded by 
R. W. Bro. Henry Macpherson, 

That the Report of the Board on Jurisprudence be received and adopted. 

In amendment, it was moved by M. W. Bro. Daniel Spry, 
seconded by R. W. Bro. T. Sargant, 

That the Report be referred back to to the Board with instructions to 
recommend an amendment to the rulings of Grand Lodge, by which all 
bodies claiming to be Masonic, and founded on Craft Masonry, may be 
allowed to occupy Masonic Halls. 

The amendment was put to Grand Lodge and declared car- 
ried. 

The Report as amended was then adopted. 



126 GRAND LODGE 01 CAN IDA. 

REPORT OF THE BOARD ON THE CONDITION 

OF MASONRY. 

R. \V. Bro. Henry Robertson on behalf of the Board, pre- 
sented and read the following 

report : 

Your Board feel a peculiar satisfaction in being able to an- 
nounce that a careful reading ot the reports of the respective 
District Deputy Grand Masters of St. Clair, London, Huron, 
Wellington, Niagara, Georgian, Toronto, Ontario, Prince Ed- 
ward, Hamilton, St. Lawrence, Wilson and Ottawa Districts 
shows that the cause is in a state of vigour, that the increase in 
membership is favorable and that the interest taken in the work 
of craft masonry merits the commendation of Grand Lodge. 

The official visitations of the District Deputy Grand Mas- 
ters in nearly all the districts display a faithful regard to the 
interest of the craft, while in others a laxity quite observable 
is indicated by the reports. 

A falling off in the mumber of lodges of instruction held 
in the different districts is to be noticed, and while the D. 
D. G. M's of Hamilton, London and Huron districts have 
zealously carried out the important duty of teaching the 
young Hiramite, others have apparently lost sight of the fact 
that careful attention and instruction are in the highest degree 
necessary in order to secure uniformity in the work and inter- 
est in the fundamental principles which we seek to teach. 

Your Board are pleased to note that except in one District 
no case of " Infnngment of Jurisdiction" is reported, and trust 
that this due regard on the part of lodges towards each other 
will always be a distinguishing characteristic of the craft. 

The joint occupation of lodge rooms with other organiza- 
tions is in opposition to the expressed opinion of Grand 
Lodge, and must be avoided. There are but few sections of 
this jurisdiction that cannot afford to have lodge rooms, 
exclusively for the meetings of the craft. It is gratifying to 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. I 27 

observe that in Prince Edward District there are no less than 
nine halls owned by the craft, that in Toronto two handsome 
halls are being erected, and that other districts are emulating 
their example by the erection of buildings sacred to the pur- 
poses of Masonry. 

Your Board deem worthy of special attention the fact that a 
W. M. of Niagara District has appropriated lodge funds, which 
were afterwards returned in the shape of a promissory note. 
Such conduct is in the highest degree unworthy of a craftsman, 
particularly one vested with the privilege of presiding over his 
brethren. There are proper officers in all lodges whose duty 
it is to receive the funds, and their duties should not be 
invaded by even the W. M. 

The only lodge in the jurisdiction reported dormant is No. 
179, Bothwell. This is to be deplored, and we trust that the 
incoming D. 1). G. M. will endeavor to infuse new life into it 
and thus add to the interest taken in the craft in that district. 

The reports of the I). D. G. M's. of St. Clair and Toronto 
districts call attention to the average of dues in private lodges, 
and claim that suspension might have been avoided in many 
cases had prompt collection been made when the sums owing 
were small in amount. Your committee are of opinion that 
W. M's. but perform their duty when they insist that brethren 
in arrear shall pay up. It is unfair to those who do pay, and 
non-payment is always a source of annoyance in lodges. The 
amount asked from brethren is almost infinitesimal — averaging 
about a cent a day — and unless a brother is in circumstances 
of distress he ought to bear his share of the expenses of his 
lodge. Grand Lodge is supported by the fees from subordinate 
lodges, and these in turn must be supported by their members. 

While your Board do now, as on former occasions, feel that 
the undue multiplication of lodges is to be avoided, as tend- 
ing to weaken, rather than strengthen Masonry, yet they feel 
assured that the establishment of new lodges at Parkdale, 
Mattawa, Fenelon Falls, Gore Bay, Gravenhurst and Beaver- 
ton, will be to the advantage of the Craft, and add many 
faithful workers in these localities. 



128 CRAM) LODGE "I I \.\ADA. 

The excellent report of the 1 ). 1 >. ( '■. M. <>i ( Jeorgian district 
— the most extensive in our jurisdiction — harmonizes with the 
opinion of your Board, in that the prosperity of the Crait is 
sometimes jeopardised by the planting of lodges in sparsely 
settled sections. His allusion to the fact that the brethren at 
l'enetang were enabled to rebuild their hall, destroyed by 
fire, by having the forethought to insure, should commend 
itself to all lodges that own property. Insurance is indispensi- 
ble. The removal of Manitoba Lodge, No. 236, from Bond 
Head to Cookstown, will, no doubt, as the D. D. G. M. 
remarks, be of benefit to the Craft in that part of the district. 
The D. 1). G. M. of " Georgian " has been most assiduous in 
the discharge of his duties. He has visited every lodge under 
his control, and at a large personal expense travelled over 
three thousands of miles, a faithful laborer in the Masonic 
vineyard. 

Your Board feel diffident in expressing an opinion 
on the division of districts. The D. D. G. M. of 
St. 1 .awrence district advocates a division, and in view of the 
apparent demand expressed at previous sessions of Grand 
Lodge in relation to the re-arrangement or redistribution of 
the districts under the jurisdiction of Grand Lodge, beg to 
suggest that the question of such re-arrangement or re-distri- 
bution be referred to a special committee of Grand Lodge, by 
the M. W. the Grand Master, to be dealt with by them as 
speedily as possible, and that their report be accepted as a 
notice of motion, and inserted in the proceedings of Grand 
Lodge to be dealt with as such at said communication. 

Your Board coincide with the opinion of the D. D. G. M. 
of Ontario District, who repeating the advice of his prede- 
cessor, recommends that the warrant of Excelsior Lodge, No. 
353, Colborne, should be cancelled. 

Per contra, the report of the D. D. G. M. of St. 
Clair District advises the opening of a lodge at Tilbury Cen- 
tre, claiming that the interests of legitimate Masons are 
affected in that place by a spurious organization, of mushroom 
growth. 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. I 29 

Your Board think that the fullest explanation and apology 
is due to the D. D. G. M. of Georgian District, the represen- 
tative of our Grand Master, for the conduct of the W. M. of 
Unity Lodge, No. 376, Huntsville. The dignity of the 
authorized officials of Grand Lodge should be protected, and 
if amends are not made, the offender should be brought under 
discipline. 

Your Board are pained to note the action of a W. M. of 
Toronto District, in calling his lodge at the unreasonable and 
unseasonable hour of 7.30, a.m., and agree with the prompt 
manner in which the D. D. G. M. dealt with the case by order- 
ing that candidates should not be balloted for at that meeting. 
The courteous reply of the VV. M. to the D. D. G. M., shows 
a proper Masonic spirit and respect for constituted authority. 

Seldom is it our mournful lot to record the loss of those 
who have fallen on the field of battle. Among the thousands 
who responded to their country's call were many craftsmen. To 
some of these, the dread sound of the gavel of death came not 
amid the pleasant works of peace, but amid the clash of arms. 
The deadly bullet aimed by rebel hands, sent them to a sol- 
dier's grave. They gave their lives to their country. Among 
them was our brother, A. W. Kippen, over whose body our 
last sad rites were performed by the W. M. of Lodge No. 14, 
Perth, in the presence of hundreds of craftsmen, and a large 
concourse of citizens. Let us treasure the memories of those 
who have fallen, and lay upon their tombs the tender 
tribute of a Mason's grief, and to those whom they have left 
behind extend the firm hand of a Mason's fellowship, 
and shield with our Order's protecting wing the widowed 
mother and the orphan child. Others have been taken from 
our ranks. The voice that greeted us when last we met we 
shall hear no more. Hands that clasped ours are cold in 
death, and he who was our friend has passed over to the great 
beyond. We regret to record the deaths of — 

R. W. Bro. S. S. McCormack, P. D. D. G. M., of Welling- 
ton District ; R. W. Bro. Saul Ross, of Sussex No. 5 Brock- 
ville ; W. Bro. Switzer, of Granite Lodge, No. 332, Parry

They were brethren known to a great many ot us. Let

to advance. 

It was moved by R. W. Bro. Henry Robertson, seconded by 
R. W. Bro. J. Ross Robertson, and 

Resolved, — That the Report of the Board on the Condition of Masonry 
be received and adopted. 

ELECTION OF DISTRICT DEPUTY GRAND 
MASTERS. 

In accordance with notice given at last Annual Communica- 
tion, it was moved by W. Bro. Geo. Tait, seconded by R. W. 
Bro. I. P. Willson, and 

Resolved, — That Section 43 " of District Deputy Grand Master" in the 
Book of Constitution, be amended by inserting before the word " represen- 
tatives " in the third line, the words " past masters and." 

REGISTRATION FEES. 

In accordance with notice given at the last annual commu- 
nication, it was moved by V. W. Bro. Alex. Hess, seconded by 
W. Bro. M. O. Macgregor, 

That the tenth paragraph "of fees" in the Book of Constitution be 
amended by striking out the words " one dollar " and inserting therefor the 
words " fifty cents." 

The resolution was put to Grand Lodge, and declared lost. 

HONORARY RANK CONFERRED. 

It was moved by R. W. Bro. J. E. Harding, seconded by 
M. W. Bro. Daniel Spry, and 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 131 

Resolved, — That the rank of Honorary Past Grand Master of this Grand 
Lodge, be conferred upon R. W. Bro. Otto Klotz, in recognition of the 
long and distinguished service rendered by him to this Grand Lodge. 

TESTIMONIAL TO M. W. BRO. KLOTZ. 

It was moved by R. W. Bro. E Plant, seconded by R. W. 
Bro. F. C. Martin, and 

Resolved, — That a committee be appointed by the M. W. the Grand 
Master to select and present to M. YV. Bro. Otto Klotz, Honorary Past 
Grand Master, the Regalia pertaining to his position. 

Whereupon the M. W. the Grand Master was pleased to 
appoint on the aforesaid committee, R.W. Bros. Henry Robert 
son, Henry Macpherson and Thomas Sargant. 

INVASION OF JURISDICTION. 

It was moved by R. W. Bro. Otto Klotz. seconded by M. 
W. Bro. Daniel Spry, 

That whereas numerous complaints have been made that lodges have 
been guilty of infringement of jurisdiction by initiating candidates whose 
residences were not within the limit of such lodges, respectively ; and a 
•want of harmony between lodges has resulted from such infringement. 

And whereas, the Board of General Purposes in their " Report on the 
Condition of Masonry " (G. L. P., 1884, page 134) did respectfully suggest 
to Grand Lodge, that a heavier penalty than merely a refund of the initia- 
tion fee be inflicted on the Worshipful Master, who in the most flagrant 
manner encroaches on the territory not his own. 

And whereas, Grand Lodge by its adoption of that Report approved of, 
and confirmed that suggestion. 

Be it therefore resolved that any wilful infringement of jurisdiction of a 
ledge without proper dispensation, is absolutely illegal and a gross Mas- 
onic offence. 

That any Worshipful Master who takes action upon a petition for initia- 
tion into his lodge from a person who resides outside of the jurisdiction 
of that lodge, and who permits the ballot to be taken upon such a peti- 
tion, without having first presented to him a dispensation from the Grand 
Master, authorizing the reception and action upon such a petition, shall 
upon being found guilty of that offence, be suspended by the M. W. the 
Grand Master, for the term of one year from all Masonic rights, privi- 
leges and benefits. 

The foregoing resolution was by consent, referred to the 
Board of General Purposes, and subsequently the Board report- 
ed, recommending that the resolution stand as a notice of 
motion for the next Annual Communication, which report was 
concurred in by Grand Lodge.

REPORT OX ADDRESS OF THE GRAND MASTER. 

R. W. Bro. Henry Robertson, on behalf of the Board, pre- 
sented and read the following 

report : 

The Board of General Purposes desire to congratulate the 
M. W. the Grand Master, upon the prosperity which has 
attended the Grand Lodge during his administration of its 
affairs. 

The many and laborious duties discharged by him, show 
that our Grand Master has been active and zealous in his 
labors in our behalf. 

The brethren are called again to mourn the loss of some 
who in life have contributed much of their time and talents 
towards promoting the interest of the Craft. Grand Lodge 
will unite with the M. W. the Grand Master in tendering frat- 
ernal sympathy to those who are left in sorrow to grieve over 
the departure of their loved ones. 

The Board earnestly commend to the D. D. G. M., the 
practice of holding Lodges of Instruction in their respective 



134 GRAND LODGE <>F CANADA. 

Districts, which, with the increased facilities now afforded at 
these meetings of obtaining accurate representations of the 
" work, ' will be found of great service to those entrusted with 
the government of the lodges. 

Whilst deploring the unfortunate rebellion in the North- 
west territories of our Dominion, the unhappy results which will 
ensue therefrom, and the sad loss of life, occasioned in the sup- 
pression of the outbreak, the brethren hive seen with pride 
and natural satisfaction the promptness with which our citizen 
soldiery responded to the call of their country ; and they have 
in common with their fellow subjects watched with admiration 
the fortitude and fidelity displayed by the brave fellows in en- 
during the hardships incident to the campaign, conducted 
amidst so many and great difficulties. 

The brethren of Grand Lodge will heartily endorse the 
views of the M. W. the G. M. as expressed in his decisions upon 
the questions submitted to him, and especially those relating to 
the confessions of faith required of candidates for admission 
to our order. 

In this age of scepticism and unbelief it cannot be too 
plainly asserted or too clearly understood that the Grand Lodge 
of Canada will admit none within the portals of our Lodges, 
nor continue the privileges of Freemasonry to any who do not 
acknowledge their belief in God ; that He has revealed His 
will to man in the volume of the Sacred Law which we recog- 
nize as the first of the three great lights of Masonry, and the 
One to rule and govern our faith, and God will certainly 
punish vice and reward virtue. Men who claim a right to dis- 
believe, or at all events doubt the existence of God, or to 
doubt that there will be a future life of rewards and punish- 
ments, having no right to approach our altars, — no footing on 
the floor of our Lodges. 

It is worse than mockery to recommend the volume of the 
Sacred Law to the serious contemplation of such men, or 
charge them to consider it the unerring standard of truth and 
justice and to regulate their actions by the Divine precepts 
which it contains ; to admonish them that therein they will be 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HANILTON, 5885. 1 35 

taught the important duty they owe to their God, to their 
neighbor and to themselves ; to declare to them that such duty 
requires them never to mention God's name, but with that awe 
and reverence which are due from the creature to his Creator ; 
to implore His aid on all their lawful undertakings and to look 
up to Him in every emergency for comfort and support. 
While it would savour of blasphemy to invoke the aid of the 
Almighty upon the initiations of such men, and to implore 
Him that they may dedicate and devote their lives to His ser- 
vice, to ask that they may be endowed with a competency of 
His divine wisdom, that they may display the beauties of true 
Godliness, or at a later stage to implore the Almighty to so 
pass them under His protection through the valley of the 
shadow of death, that they may finally arise from the tomb of 
transgression to shine as the stars for ever and ever. 

How can such men hope to obtain a blessed and everlasting 
rest in that spiritual edifice not made with hands, eternal in 
the Heavens. 

The Board agree with the M. W. the G. M , that this Grand 
Lodge being bound honorably to carry out the understanding 
upon which we accepted recognition from the Grand Lodge of 
England, cannot now do more than use her friendly offices to- 
wards the solution of the difficulty which has arisen between 
that Grand Lodge and the Grand Lodge of Quebec, 
owing to the continuance of the English Lodges in the City of 
Montreal, and referred to by the M. W. the G. M. in his 
address. 

Grand Lodge will view with satisfaction the action of 
the Grand Lodge of Connecticut with reference to the clandes- 
tine and irregular organization calling itself the Grand Lodge 
of Ontario. Its influence for evil would soon come to an end 
if it was sufficiently known that such organization is regarded 
by Masons throughout the world as unlawful, and that its mem- 
bers will not be admitted to any of the privileges of our order, 
either in this jurisdiction or elsewhere. 

It was moved by R. W. Bro. Henry Robertson, seconded 
by M. W. Bro. J. K. Kerr, and 



[j6 GRAND LODGK OK CANADA. 

Resolved,— T\aX the Report of the Hoard on the Address of the M. VY. 
the Grand Master, be received and adopted. 

TRANSFER TO BENEVOLENT FUND. 

In accordance with notice given, it was moved by R. W. 
Bro. Otto Klotz, seconded by R. W. Bro. David McLellan, 
and 

Resolved, — That the sum of $7,000 be taken from the general funds of 
Grand Lodge, and placed to the credit of the Fund of Benevolence, Cur- 
rent account. 

CONCURRENT JURISDICTION. 

It was moved by R. W. Bro. T. Sargant, seconded by V. W. 
Bro. J. A. Wills, and 

Resolved, — That concurrent jurisdiction with the City of Toronto, be 
given to Alpha Lodge, No. 384 and Zeta Lodge, No. 410, Parkdale. 

CREDENTIALS OF REPRESENTATIVES. 

It was moved by R. W. Bro. R. B. Hungerford, seconded 
by R. W. Bro. Robert Hendry, jr., and 

Resolved,— Thai the Committee on the Credentials of Representatives 
shall meet from 6 to 10 on the evening preceding the Annual Communica- 
tion of Grand Lodge, and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the following clay, and 
that the books shall then be closed, and the report presented to Grand 
Lodge. 

NOMINATIONS FOR OFFICE. 

It was moved by V. W. Bro. Wm. Forbes, seconded by R. 

W. Bro. John W. Coy, 

That in future all nominations for offices in Grand Lodge shall be accom- 
panied by the names of the nominators respectively. 

The resolution was put to Grand Lodge and declared lost. 

REVISION OF CONSTITUTION. 

It was moved by M. W. Bro. Otto Klotz, seconded by M. 
VY. Bro. Daniel Spry, and 

Resolved, — That a Committee be appointed to revise the Constitution, 
and that such Committee lay before Grand Lodge at the next Annual Com- 
munication the result of its labors, and that the M. W. the Grand Master, 
be requested to appoint the Committee. 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 137 

Whereupon the M. W. the Grand Master was pleased to 
appoint on the Committee, M. \V. Bros. Daniel Spry and Otto 
Klotz, and R. W. Bro. Henry Robertson. 

REPORT ON PRESENTATION TO M. W. BROTHER 
D. SPRY. 

R. W. Brother Henry Robertson on behalf of the Commit- 
tee, presented and read the following report. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, and the Grand 
Lodge of A. F. cV A. M. of Canada. 

At the last annual communication of the Grand Lodge a 
committee was appointed " To select and present to M. W. Bro. 
Daniel Spry, P. G. M., a suitable testimonial, as a token of 
the respect and esteem in which he is held by the members 
of Grand Lodge, and of the able manner in which he has pre- 
sided over the Craft during the past two years." 

The committee thus appointed beg respectfully to report that 
they have performed the pleasant duty assigned to them. A suit- 
able testimonial was procured, consisting of a handsome set 
of regalia and other articles, and the presentation took plac e 
in the Masonic hall at Barrie, on the 22nd day of June last, 
in the presence of a large number of members of Corinthian 
Lodge, No. 96, and Kerr Lodge, No. 230, and visiting brethren- 
Complimentary addresses were delivered by the Deputy 
Grand Master, and V. W Bro. C. L. Sanders, W. Bros. S. J- 
McL. Stevenson, John Rogerson and others. The address 
accompanying the testimonial was beautifully engrossed and 
illuminated. We append hereto a copy of the address. 

All of which is fraternally submitted,

i v s GR \M' LODGE OP ' ANAD \. 

ADDRESS 
To Most Worshipful Brother Daniel Spry, P. G. M : 

Dear Sir and M. W. Bro., — One of the earliest lessons 
taught to the neophyte in Freemasonry, is that merit alone is 
the best title to Masonic privileges ; and our ancient charges 
declare that " all preferment among Masons is grounded upon 
real worth and personal merit only, so that the lords may be 
well served, the brethren not put to shame nor the Royal 
Craft despised." 

Since the time when you first became a member of the 
Grand Lodge in 1861, you have held many and various posi- 
tions in the government of the Craft in Canada, and during 
the past two years you have filled the important and honor- 
able office of Grand Master. 

The Crafc in general are greatly indebted to you for the 
zeal, energy and perseverance with which you have devoted 
your talents and abilities to the service of our beloved order. 
You have ever been found punctual in the discharge of your 
duties, just and impartial in all your rulings and thoroughly 
conversant and familiar with the great landmarks and customs 
of the fraternity. 

The self-sacrifice necessarily involvedin the promptand proper 
discharge of the duties of the various stations you have been 
called upon to fill, and your zeal and devotion to the interests of 
the Brotherhood were, from time to time recognized and 
acknowledged, until, finally your brethren conferred upon you the 
highest honor in their power by placing you at the head of the 
Craft as their Most Worshipful Grand Master. 

Your brethren can confer upon you no greater distinction. 
The annals of Masonry contain no higher triumph. 

With marked ability you wielded the gavel of executive 
authority, and at your retirement from office in July last, the 
Grand Lodge unanimously ordered that a committee should 
be appointed, charged with the agreeable duty which we are 
now about to perform. 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON. 5885. 139 

We have very great pleasure, then, Most Worshipful Sir, in 
the name of, and on behalf of the Grand Lodge of Ancient, 
Free and Accepted Masons of Canada, in offering for your ac- 
ceptance, this regalia and other articles, as a slight testimon- 
ial of the respect and esteem in which you are held by the 
members of the Grand Lodge, and of the able manner in 
which you have presided over the Craft during the past two 
years. 

With the best wishes for your continued happiness and 
prosperity, 

We beg to remain. Most Worshipful Sir, 

Yours fraternally, 

Henry Robertson, i

REPORT ON GRIEVANCES AND APPEALS. 

R. W. Bro. Henry Robertson, on behalf of the Board, 
presented and read the following 

report : 

The Board of General Purposes have had before them the 
following cases of grievance and appeal, all of which have 
been carefully considered, and the conclusions arrived at are 
embodied in the report in detail upon each case as follows : — 

In the matter of 

Moira Lodge, No. n, 

vs. 

Bro. T- Landsberg. 



In this matter Bro. 
J. Landsberg was 
charged with several 



offences which are set forth in eight specifications. On all 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 153 

these charges the defendant was found guilty by his Lodge. 

Bro. Landsberg was duly summoned to appear and show 
cause why he should not be expelled from the Craft. He 
appeared and urged various objections to the findings of the 
Lodge, and the sentence of suspension passed upon him. 
The defendant admitted the seventh charge, which was, that 
said Jacob Landsberg had been guilty of unmasonic conduct 
in this, that since the election mentioned in the last specifica- 
tion, he has stated that had he known that the election of 
Worshipful Master would have been adverse to him, he would 
have bought up enough of votes of the brethren at five dollars 
each to have secured his election, thereby imputing unworthy 
and corrupt motives, and want of masonic integrity to the 
members of said Lodge. 

The Board are also of opinion that the evidence fully sus- 
tains charge four. (, That the said Jacob Landsberg has 
in divers places, and at Masonic meetings regularly assembled 
or convened, been guilty of disobedience to those in authority 
and acting in their official capacities." 

The Board are of opinion, without going into the other 
charges alleged, that Brother Landsberg's conduct, in respect 
of the matters which form the subject of the fourth and seventh 
charges has been such as to merit indefinite suspension, and 
they therefore recommend that he be indefinitely suspended. 

In the matter of \ 

King Solomon's Lodge, Xo. 43, I. Bro. John Garth- 

^ S- waite is charged 

Bro. John Garthwaite. by King Solomon's 

Lodge, No. 43, with having been guilty of unmasonic conduct 

in having defrauded Bro. Thos. H. Parker of a sum of money 

amounting to two hundred and sixty-five dollars, he having 

sold to Mr. Parker three promissory notes amounting to that 

sum, payment of said notes having been refused by the parties 

represented as having signed them on the ground that they 

had not made said notes and that the signatures affixed 

to them were forgeries. 



(54 GRAND LODGE 01 CANADA. 

The evidence not being sufficient in the opinion of the 
Board to justify the conviction of Bro. Garthwaite, the Board 
recommend that the case be referred back to the Lodge to be 
re-tried, with instructions to procure if possible, the evidence 
of the parties who denied their signatures to the notes 
referred to. 

Bro. Thomas Wilson, 

vs i • 

In this matter 

W. Bro. Sweetman, " thg defendant was . 

Fordwich Lodge, No. 331. ) charged with un . 

masonic conduct and with the commission of a very serious 
offence against morality and society. 

Being Master of the Lodge the D. U. G. M. of Huron 
District was instructed to enquire into and try the charge. 
The D. D. G. M. tried the case and found the defendant 
not guilty. This finding was approved by the M. VV. the G. 
M. The plaintiff has appealed from the finding of the D. D. 
G. M. and on the hearing of the appeal, certain letters purport- 
ing to have been written by the defendant, or copies thereof, 
were put in. These letters were not brought to the notice of 
the D. D. G. M. and it is therefore recommended that the 
finding of the D. D. G. M. be opened and that the case be 
remitted back to the D. D. G. M. for the same District to be 
reconsidered and re-tried by him. 

Re charges of unmasonic conduct "\ 
preferred against 
W. Brother Watt, 
Worshipful Master of Rehoboam Lodge 
by 
Bro. Malcolm Gibbs, Junior Warden. 
causing a false entry to be made in the minute book of his 
Lodge, respecting the restoration of the late Bro. Edwin Gray. 

The M. W. the Grand Master on 8th Nov., 1884 appointed, 
commissioners to enquire into and investigate the charges pre- 
ferred against W. Bro. Watt, by Bro. Malcolm Gibbs. 



In this case W. 
Bro. Watt was 
charged with 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 



r 55 



The commissioners reported on ioth Dec, 1SS4, rinding 
that W. Bro. Watt had caused the false entry in question to be 
made in the minute book. And on the 26th Dec, the M. W. 
the Grand Master approved of the finding of the commissioners? 
suspended the W. Bro., and referred all the papers and evidence 
to this Board for further directions if any. 

The Board entirely approve of the finding of the commiss- 
ioners and the decision of the Grand Master, and recommend 
that YV. Bro. Watt remain suspended for two years from the said 
26th Dec, last. 

R. W. Bro. I. P. Willson, | 

vs.

Y\ . Bro. Burgar, YV . M. r , . , . , 

of this complaint and 

Merritt Lodge, 168. ) t h e action taken upon 

it are set out on page 146 of the proceedings of 1884. The 
D. D. G. M. of Niagara District has reported that R. W. Bro. 
I. P. Willson was, at the time he was prevented by W. Bro. 
Burgar from exercising his right of balloting for a candidate, 
an honorary member of the lodge, with equal rights with the 
other members of the lodge. In this opinion the Board con- 
cur, and they think that W. Bro. Burgar acted arbitrarily and 
unmasonically on the occasion in question. 



In the matter of 

Lebanon Lodge, No. 139, 

vs. 

Bro. Robt. Gott. 



In this case there 
is no material upon 
which to base any 
action. 



In the matter of

In the matter of \

' In this case there is 



no information as to

vs. 
Bro. E. C. Long. 
of suspension upon which the board can act, and therefore 
recommend that it be laid over until next meeting of Grand 
Lodge. 

Merritt Lodge, No. i68, \ 

In this case the de- 
vs 

f fendant is charged with 

W. Bro. E. H. Burgar. j having taken and re- 

tained in his hands certain funds of said Lodge. 

He was tried and found guilty by his Lodge, and was sus- 
pended and recommended for expulsion. The Board 
concur in this finding, and recommend that the defendant be 
summoned to appear at next meeting of Grand Lodge, to show 
cause why he should not be expelled from the order. 

Re Complaints of 
Kilwinning Lodge, No. 64, 

against 
Nilestown Lodge, No. 345, 

and 
St. Paul's Lodge, No. 107, 

for 
Infringement of Jurisdiction. 

to the D. D. G. M., to report upon, and that the Grand 
Master give such decision on the report of the D. D. G. M. 
as he may deem best. 

Re Complaint of Doric Lodge, No. 289] 

against [ Doric Lodge com- 

St. Paul'sLodge, No. 107. j plains that St. P?ul's 

Lodge initiated a candidate who was a resident within the juris, 
diction of Doric Lodge, without permission of the Grand 
Master. St. Paul's Lodee admits the offence, expressees regret 
therefor, and asks for a merciful consideration of their case. 



As there are no 
facts before the Board 
on these complaints, 
the Board recommend 
that they be referred 



ANNUAL COMMUNICATION, HAMILTON, 5885. 157 

The Board recommend that St. Paul's Lodge pay to Doric 
Lodge the sum of $17, and to Grand Lodge the sum of $10, 
but that the Grand Master have authority to remit the latter 
amount, if for any reason to be adduced by the Lodge he 
should deem it well so to do. 



W. Bro. Wilbur Grant, 

vs. 

-r, V The subject matter 

Bro. Tohx Harrison, c . . , . 

of this complaint was 

King Solomon's Lodge, No. 22. ) a charge preferred by 

W. Bro. Grant against Bro. John Harrison, of King Solomon's 

Lodge, No. 22, of being a person unfit to retain his connection 

with his lodge or with the Masonic fraternity of Canada. 

And the ground of unfitness alleged was that Bro. Harrison is 

an Agnostic, Secularist and Freethinker, and being such has- 

religious views and opinions not consistent with the doctrines 

and principles of freemasonry. 

On this charge Bro. Harrison was tried by King Solomon's 
Lodge and was found guilty, on the 9th April, 1885, and he 
was indefinitely suspended by the Lodge. 

From this finding and sentence Bro. Harrison appealed to 
the M. W. the G. M. who refened the appeal to the Board of 
General Purposes. 

On his trial before the Lodge Bro. Harrison admitted that 
he was an Agnostic, a Freethinker, and a Secularist. He ex- 
plained to the Board, and as he alleges, on his trial before the 
Lodge, that he was an Agnostic only in the sense of the word 
as used by Prof. Huxley who, he says, defines an Agnostic to 
be " one " who is honest enough to admit that he does not 
know what under the present condition of human knowledge, 
is impossible to be known. Bro. Harrison further stated that 
he did not agree with all that was contained in the book called 
the Secularist's manual put in at the trial, and that he does not 
approve of all of the ten secular demands mentioned in the 
evidence as having been brought before a freethought conven- 
tion held in Toronto, and that those demands were not adopted 
by any convention of the Secularists held in that city. 



I 5S GRAND LODGE OF CANADA. 

Bro. Harrison also stated his belief in God, the Great Archi- 
tect of the Universe, that God had revealed His will to man 
in the volume of the sacred law, and that He would punish 
vii e and reward virtue. He further stated that he had not the 
slightest contempt for God and religion. 

The Board believing that Bro. Harrison honestly entertains 
the views and opinions which he expressed to them, recom- 
mend that his suspension be removed, and that he be 
restored to good standing in his Lodge. 

[Note — The original report upon the complaint against Bro. 
Harrison did not come into possession of the Grand Secretary, 
and could not be found amongst the papers connected with 
the meeting of Grand Lodge. The report above set forth, was 
written by the Chairman of the Committee on Grievances and 
Appeals from notes taken at the time the matter was before 
them, and is believed to be substantially the same as that 
actually presented to Grand Lodge.] 

It was moved by R. W. Bro. Henry Robertson, seconded 
by R. W. Bro. R. T. Walkem, 

That the Report of the Board on Grievances and Appeals, be received 
and adopted. 

In amendment it was moved by W. Bro. Daniel Rose, 
seconded by R. W. Bro. J. G. Burns, 

That the Report be referred back to the Board with instructions to 
amend the clause relating to the charge against W. Bro. D. H. Watt, so 
as to provide that the suspension be for one year from the 26th December 
last. f 

The amendment was put to Grand Lodge and declared lost. 

It was then moved in amendment by M. W. Bro. J. K. 

Kerr, seconded by R. W: Bro Allan McLean, 

That the Report be referred back to the Board with instructions to report 
recommending that the charge against Bro. Harrison be referred to the 
M. W. the Grand Master for such further enquiry and action as he may 
deem proper. 

The amendment was put to Grand Lodge and declared car- 
ried. 

The resolution for the adoption of the Report as amended, 
was then put to Grand Lodge and declared carried.

Notices of Motion ; — 

1. By V. W. Bro. J. Parker Thomas, — That section 116 (on 
page 46) of the Constitution be amended by adding the 
word "five" in the second line after the word "twenty'' 
and before the word " dollars," making the sum for initi- 
ation twenty-five dollars (instead of twenty dollars) as 
the minimum consideration for which a Lodge shall make 

a Mason 160 

2. By V. W. Bro. J. A. Wills,— That no Lodge shall permit 
to be used in any room used by them for either Hall, 
Lodge-room, or at the refreshment table, wines or spirits 

or other intoxicating liquors 160 

3. By V. W. Bro. J. A. Wills,— That section 133 of the Con- 
stitution be amended by striking out all after the word 
"remitted" in the second line 160 

4. By M. W. Bro. Daniel Spry, — That article no of the 
Constitution be amended by inserting after the word 
"days" in the first line, the words, "and hours.'' 160 

5. By R. W. Bro. Dewitt H. Martin,— That Section 8 " of 
Grand Lodge" in the Book of Constitution be struck out. 160 

6. By W. Bro. N. McKechnie— That article 165 of the Con- 
stitution be expunged, so that country lodges may have con- 
current jurisdiction the same as lodges in towns or cities. 160 

7. By R. W. Bro. R. Radcliffe — That the Constitution be 
amended so as to provide that the actual travelling expen- 
ses (certified) of D. D. G. M's shall be paid out of the 
funds of Grand Lodge 160 

8. By M. W. Bro. Otto Klotz, — That whereas numerous 
complaints have been made that lodges have been guilty 
of infringement of jurisdiction by initiating candidates 
whose residences were not within the limit of such 
lodges, respectively, and a want of harmony between 
lodges has resulted from such infringement. 

And whereas, the Board of General Purposes, in their "Re- 



_•<,_• GRAND LODGE 01 CAN IDA. 

port on the Condition of Masonry " (G. L. P., 1884, page 
134) did respectfully suggest to Grand Lodge, that a 
heavier penalty than merely a refund of the initiation fee 
be inflicted on the Worshipful Master, who in the most 
flagrant manner encroaches on the territory not his own. 
And whereas, Grand Lodge, by its adoption of that Re- 
port, approved of and confirmed that suggestion. 
He it therefore resolved that any wilful infringement of 
jurisdiction of a lodge without proper dispensation, is ab- 
solutely illegal and a gross Masonic offence. 
That any worshipful Master who takes action upon a peti- 
tion for initiation into his lodge from a person who resides 
outside of the jurisdiction of that lodge, and who permits 
the ballot to be taken upon such a petition, without hav- 
ing first presented to him a dispensation from the Grand 
Master, authorizing the reception and action upon such a 
petition, shall upon being found guilty of that offence, be 
suspended by the M. W. the Grand Master, for the term 
of one year from all Masonic rights, privileges and bene- 
fits 160
